Rolling out co-operative solar across the Midlands

The Big Solar Co-op is delighted to be working in partnership with The Midcounties Co-operative on a rollout of PV arrays at 29 of its sites. This is the just the start and represents generation potential of 5 Gigawatt hours of low carbon electricity in the near future. The sites include offices and childcare settings as well as supermarkets.

It’s particularly good to be working with another co-op and maximising the benefits for their members and ours, while putting in place new solar that will reduce carbon emissions for decades to come.

The installations will start this year and continue into 2025 as we work our way around the Midlands.

We’ve had really good coverage in Solar Power Portal, Edie and other energy-related publications; we’ll be carrying out a major push for more share investment to help us finance the overall project which is estimated to cost £3m in total.
