We are a community benefit society and in 2015 we raised over £1 million, through a community share offer and loan, so that, with the support of Cannock Chase District Council, we could have 314 of their council bungalows fitted with solar panels. When the panels are generating, they provide free electricity to the tenants, who are mainly elderly or have poor health. Through the scheme, we have so far produced over 744,000 kilowatt hours of electricity (enough to make 7,236,150 cups of tea) and saved 401,328  kg of carbon dioxide emissions.
