Sheffield Renewables is a community and a social enterprise that develops, funds, builds, owns and operates renewable energy schemes. This means that we are run by and for local people. Any surplus money we earn is re-invested to support local sustainability. Much of our work is carried out by volunteers, which helps to reduce our costs. Read more about the organisation…

We are currently looking for sites suitable for fully funded community owned solar projects, in return we can offer a reduction on electricity price, and help organisations fulfil their long term environmental and carbon reduction commitments. For further details please visit our Community Solar page.
