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, many of whom are elderly or have poor health. Through the scheme, we have so far (as at Dec 2019) produced over 3.4 million kilowatt hours of electricity (enough to boil water for over 172 million cups of tea) and saved an estimated 1.8 million kg of carbon dioxide from being emitted into the atmosphere.
