Community Energy is a term used to cover a wide range of projects: from a group of individual installations to community wide networks which generate either heat or power.
It can also mean installations at community centres and facilities.
There are many benefits of such schemes to a community:
- A sense of ownership of their energy security and future
- A financial return for the community and potential reduced costs
- Communities can become stronger, more self reliant and resilient by generating their own energy and using it efficiently.
