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 in About.

- Swinton Fitzwilliam school hosts the second scheme, which was installed in October 2014. This scheme also has capacity of 50 kW and you can read more about it here.
The expected annual generation for each scheme is around 38,000 kWh, the equivalent to electricity used by 12 homes. By December 2014, the two schemes had together generated over 30,000 kWh of electricity.
