NOW LIVE AND GENERATING!
For those who haven’t heard of us, we are a Co-operative and Community Benefit Society, set up to help the community reduce its energy consumption, carbon emissions and save money. We run a range of community-based schemes, including the provision of the solar panels and insulation work at the school, and also individual household projects based on interest-free or low cost loans.
We also have a Community Car Club and a waste-oil biodiesel supply, in the village, and run the Community Swap Shops every year.
