We generate clean energy, enabling our sites to take action on climate change and to be more financially stable. In 2022, we saved our sites over £119k in electricity costs and over 1,000 tonnes of carbon emissions. Through our co-op share offer, we also give people the chance to invest their money towards a more sustainable future and get a fair rate of return. All surplus is channelled into our climate change Education programme.
Both Awel and Egni Co-ops have repaid interest to their members annually in line with their Share Offers.
Our new Share Offer will be opening for applications in 2023. Please sign up for our Mailing List to receive details.
We established Egni Co-operative in 2013 as a pilot scheme on 7 community buildings.
From 2019-21, we expanded Egni massively and developed a further 80 sites across Wales. We raised £5m in community shares and over £2m from the Development Bank of Wales.
We are continuing to develop new sites. Here are our FAQs for prospective sites – we are prioritising larger roofs at the moment (the size of two tennis courts) and who use more than 100,000 kWh/year (an electricity bill of more than £35k).
