Egni Cooperative was established and registered in 2014 by Awel Aman Tawe (AAT), a community renewable energy charity in South Wales. Awel Aman Tawe has 15 years experience of researching, developing and delivering renewable energy projects at a local level.
AAT is embedded in the community, its small staff and active volunteer group live in the area, and it is committed to protecting the outstanding natural environment of the neighbourhood. It works to raise awareness of the importance of clean energy in the fight against the threat of climate change through a sustained programme of information, communication and consultation and, more recently, through an innovative range of arts activities related to climate change that often reach people at a deeper level. The quality of its work has been recognised nationally and internationally by a growing number of prestigious awards.
Egni Co-operative is the first Solar PV Co-operative in Wales. We currently have 94 members and have successfully completed our first project – the installation of Solar PV panels on 5 community buildings. We won the Best Renewable Startup award at RenewableUK’s 2015 Wales Green Energy Awards.
Investors are beginning to see the returns on their investments and community buildings are getting free electricity. We are now gearing up for our second scheme. If you’re interested in investing get in touch.
