Introducing Karla

Meet Karla, the Big Solar Co-op’s first Community Energy Local Coordinator, working alongside Community Energy Birmingham.

Moving at pace

Despite COP26 being a damp squib we have been pushing on through and building on the success of the Big Solar Gathering.

We had a blast!

The first Big Solar Gathering was held in Birmingham, October 2021 – so much community solar knowledge under one roof!

Not long now…

Come and see what we are doing in Birmingham – you could do it in your neighbourhood too.

Would you like to work towards an ambitious target for rooftop solar PV with the Big Solar Co-op + Community Energy Birmingham?

The Big Solar Gathering

Join us for a day of expert speakers, hands on demonstrations, showcases from our Pioneer Programme learning and interesting new people to meet.

Achievements so far

We aim to install 100MWp of rooftop solar across the UK by 2025. Read about the steps we are taking to get there…

Nice to meet you!

It feels really good to be able to meet up in person and do site visits again! This is us social distancing in a park in Shrewsbury last month to meet Chris in person for the first time.
