Since 2012 BEC has raised nearly £1,500,000 from the local community to build some of the largest solar PV systems in the area.
Over the last five years we’ve built two or more new community-funded solar systems each year.
We are now the proud owners of 15 medium sized solar arrays.
Our solar partners range from schools to businesses, and from blocks of flats to a football stadium.
Our solar systems are funded by our members – hundreds of people have joined in the past seven years, helping to support more renewable energy for our city.
We continue to develop new renewable energy projects in the area; our members receive a 5% return on their investment and the chance to join a dynamic, progressive organisation committed to development of community-owned renewables
