The Energy Innovation Co-operative Ltd has established the "Southern CORE (Community Owned Renewable Energy) Fund" to support community groups wishing to install solar PV or other energy efficiency measures on buildings or sites they are responsible for. Established groups can apply for no-interest loans so they don't have to find the cash for an installation up-front. They pay back the loan at an affordable rate, through energy savings made. Those repayments return to the fund for the next community group to use !
The Co-op was granted Registered Environmental Organisation status November 2017, which means tax deductibility for donations. Contact us now if you'd like to make a donation.
