  • Our Story

    Bristol Energy Cooperative (BEC) is a community-owned energy cooperative, growing Greater Bristol’s local green energy supply and making the benefits available to all. We develop  renewable energy and energy efficiency projects, and helps others to do the same. We got started in 2011.

    Our projects are funded by investor members. They receive interest on their investment from the money we receive for the energy we produce. Any surplus is used to invest in our next projects. Decisions are made on a one-member one-vote basis. We’re a people-owned power station for Greater Bristol

    Our first community share offer in 2012 was for the installation of Solar PV panels on community buildings. We raised £128,000 from over 150 investor-members, and installed 63KW (over 250 panels in total) at Hamilton House in Stokes Croft, Knowle West Media Centre, and Easton Community Centre.

    A second share offer for Solar PV is planned for autumn 2013. Along with solar PV, we also have working groups for wind energy, energy efficiency, and renewable heat projects.
