Last week saw the launch of inner London’s first co-operatively owned solar power station, and it is right here in the heart of Brixton!
“Brixton Energy Solar 1 is a new Co-operative set up to enable local people to invest in renewable energy generation in Brixton and raise funds for energy efficiency initiatives. By investing in Brixton Energy Solar 1, your money will be put to work straight away to finance the installation of a major solar power station on the Loughborough Estate in Brixton and a Community Energy Efficiency Fund .”
The project will reduce the area dependence on far away energy sources and their volatile prices, helping reduce energy costs and fuel poverty, and helping cut carbon emissions. Genius.
Are you interested in investing? What would your investment mean in a nutshell?
- Be at the start and a part of community owned renewable energy in London;
- Help set up a Community Energy Efficiency Fund that will run for 25 years;

Last but not least: tell the world!
