Get involved

The Big Solar Co-op exists to make it possible for people to get solar built anywhere in the UK. Our work is led by volunteers, who we support in lots of different ways.

If you have a potential solar site to report, please tell us about it.

If you want to get solar rooftops built in your area asap, we can train you up to find potential sites, assess them and approach the owners.

If you are part of an existing community group there are several ways in which we can work together to get more solar built in your area.

We’d also love to hear from you if you have expertise in solar tech, community energy, coding, marketing, training – there are opportunities to join our team as a volunteer, paid peer mentor or staff member. Let us know what would you like to get out of or contribute to the Big Solar Co-op project via this simple form:

In the near future we will be raising funds to build our first solar sites, so if you might like to invest please join our mailing list and we will keep you up to date.

If you’d prefer video to words, here is Jon Halle explaining the big idea at the Stir to Action, Playground for the New Economy Festival:
