  • Our Story

    South East London Community Energy (SELCE) was formed in February 2014 by a group of Greenwich and Lewisham residents. Aware of the need to tackle climate change, to reduce carbon emissions, for a rapid transition to low carbon energy sources and to reduce levels of fuel poverty, we formed SELCE as a vehicle for taking action in a locally focused way.

    Over three winters from 2014 through to 2017, SELCE has helped over 1,940 vulnerable households to avoid having to make the choice between heating and eating. SELCE hosts friendly pop-up energy cafes, which provide clients with a better understanding of how to reduce their bills and keep warm and well in winter. SELCE also works in partnership with Childrens Centres providing tailored advice and energy saving gizmo’s to vulnerable young families. Enabling low income to access grant funded home energy improvements such as loft or cavity wall insulations is a key part of their work. Over the winter of 2017 – 18 they identified £69,398.21 of savings for clients by supporting them to get the best deal on energy and access discounts, they installed 782 ‘energy saving measures such as low energy and power down switches and enabled 81 households to access energy efficiency measures

    SELCE has seven solar P.V sites, all located on school roofs and saving the hosts an estimated £311,070 in electricity costs over the 20-year project. SELCE also runs a ‘Watt’s about you?’ energy information roadshow with a portable solar sound system, touring community fetes and carnivals to raise awareness of climate change and the energy transition.
