Community solar anywhere

The Big Solar Co-op is a new approach to subsidy-free community solar, supported by Sharenergy. We’re working across the UK to:

  • Make solar viable on a huge range of sites – without subsidy
  • Empower and support volunteers to work together to get it built
  • Fight the climate crisis through large-scale, grassroots community action

    We welcome Chris to the team, are setting up our next webinar and a regular call for people to come and ask us (almost) anything.
  • All change!
    All change! New volunteer activists join the project, our intern heads off to fresh pastures and we hired a Solar Projects Lead.
