"Community Renewables are a way of embedding clean energy generation at the heart of communities."

Egni co-operative develops solar energy on community buildings in Wales. By doing so, we generate clean energy, we enable community projects to be more financially stable, and we give people the chance to put their money towards a more sustainable future.

For 2019 Egni Co-op is looking for new roofs for solar!
Egni is looking for buildings such as community centres, businesses and schools who’ve got an interest in reducing their bills and helping tackle climate change.

The Government is ending the Feed-in Tariff subsidy at the end of March but there is an exemption for co-ops such as ourselves to pre-register and maintain the current FiT rate for a year. This will give us time to install the panels using a community share offer and bridging finance. The response so far has been fantastic and we’ve pre-registered 40 sites with over a 1MW of solar. We’re part of the same team which set up Awel Co-op – this is a community wind farm that raised over £3m in community shares and was commissioned in Jan 2017 – www.awel.coop.

Everyone recognises the impact of climate change and this an opportunity to do something positive whilst engaging people in Wales in a co-op. If people want to know about the forthcoming share offer, they can join our mailing list on www.egni.coop.

However, time is running out so if you are interested, please email rosie@awel.coop or phone 07938 377374.


Watch the electricity being produced!

We already have 179kw of solar panels on seven community buildings in south Wales which have been working well since 2015. We raised £230,000 from 94 members to fund this.

By the end of 2018 the seven sites had generated 504,688 kWh, saving over 180 tonnes of carbon. View a detailed breakdown for all sites.

Each scheme is linked to a live website where you can see the electricity production and carbon savings. Click the relevant photo:
