Our 2019 Community Benefit Fund has launched!

This year’s fund is only open to those 24 buildings hosting our solar panels. Grants will be awarded on rolling basis until the allocated funds are used!  Click here for further information.

In 2015, 541 members raised £1.5 million to fund a programme of Solar PV on 24 roof tops across the city. Panels are located on top of community centres, schools and leisure facilities.

“Schools, community centres and sports halls are now creating clean, green electricity for themselves and for the wider community, in a project funded by local investors. This is the biggest scheme of its type in the UK and we would be delighted to see this kind of project spreading to other Scottish cities.” – Richard Dixon, Director, Friends of the Earth Scotland.

Our panels have a total installed capacity of 1,389 kW or 1.38 MW.

A total generation potential of 1,107,250 kWh per year, weather dependent of course !
