Our vision

"To create a financially sustainable community owned not for profit social energy enterprise"

Our vision is to develop a range of renewable energy installations making use of our local resources such as the sun, wind, water and woodlands, to reduce carbon emissions, provide a return to investors and funding to help people reduce their energy use and live more sustainably. Our first projects will be solar PV systems fitted to community buildings such as libraries, neighbourhood hubs, leisure and sports clubs. We will also consider other technologies such as solar water heating, biomass boilers and heat pumps.


Our aims

Our aims are to deliver benefits to the community by:

• promoting renewable energy generation and developing, installing and operating renewable and low carbon energy systems;
• enabling the local and wider community to share in the ownership of renewable and low carbon energy projects;
• raising awareness and supporting educational and other initiatives related to renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainability.

LWCE is committed to an ethical and environmentally responsible policy in sourcing and installing renewable energy systems. We will use local installers wherever feasible and purchase technology of proven reliability from reputable and ethical manufacturers.
