Big Solar Gathering

Birmingham, 18 October 2021

The Big Solar Co-op is a volunteer-owned co-op which is putting a shot in the arm of community solar across the UK. Come and see what we are doing in Birmingham – you could do it in your neighbourhood too:

  • A ready-to-go model for community solar
  • A network of activists who work together across the UK
  • Free training for solar volunteers
  • A paid local co-ordinator to get things going

Check out the agenda for the day and who will be there.


  • Hosting a Big Solar Co-op node (see how we are working alongside Community Energy Birmingham to restart community solar)
  • Launch of the new Big Solar Co-op structure – putting volunteers in the driving seat
  • Extended clinic sessions where you can ask an expert your questions on solar design, legal agreements, approaching host sites and more
  • Scaling up – what does and doesn’t work (with Daniel Heery of Charge My Street)
  • New ways to get volunteers involved and support them to deliver solar in their neighbourhood and beyond
  • Hands on with solar tech on show to understand the latest panels and inverters

Doors open 10am and we will aim to finish by 4pm. Sharenergy and Big Solar support staff will be around for longer if anyone wants to go for a drink or a bite to eat afterwards.

Please get in touch with Noel if you have any questions:
