Streatham Power – Renewable Energy Cooperative
Project Category: Other
Streatham Power is a community-owned social enterprise that exists to enable the local community to lead Streathams transition to a resilient and zero carbon energy future.
The organisation evolved from initial discussions within Transition Streatham, a local group looking at ways of making Streatham a more sustainable place to live. Streatham Power became a separate not-for-profit company in September 2011.
Our vision is the supply of 100% carbon-neutral energy for the district of Streatham by 2050. We envisage that in the long-term all inhabitants of Streatham will be affected by this project and benefit through lower energy costs and secure energy supplies.
Our objectives are:
§ To generate local low and zero carbon energy to increase Streathams resilience to future energy challenges;
§ To set up a community investment scheme focused on sustainable energy available to all individuals, communities and businesses, within and around Streatham, that share our objectives;
§ To reduce Streathams energy consumption, cost and environmental impact and our reliance on unsustainable sources of energy.
Specifically, we are planning the installation of PV solar panels on a mixture of roofs public, commercial and residential. We are currently working on some projects in the Streattham area in liaison with our Cooperative and Corporate partners (including Carbon Leapfrog).
