I’m pleased to say that a staggering £290,000 has now been pledged to Brighton Energy Coop’s latest community solar PV schemes.
This excellent achievement has been done by BEC members both old and new; nearly 100 people have said they’ll support our new solar PV projects – which we’ll be announcing in the next few days.
As it happened – pledges to BEC’s latest fundraising efforts since December 2017
Historically, 90% of our pledgees have come good on their pledges – as would be expected from such a virtuous lot! This is BEC’s sixth fund-raising round, and will add to the £1.6m (and previously pledged) that we’ve raised in the past six years.
During this time we’ve built many solar arrays – our new crop will add three new commercial premises to our roster of solar landlords; all of whom save significantly on their electricity bill.
If you’re interested in getting involved with our latest solar arrays then you can pledge your interest here. Members receive a projected 5% return on their investment, and the chance to get involved in new PV projects in our area.
All the best
