In 2010 a group of individuals passionate about renewable energy formed MaidEnergy, with the intention of cutting carbon emissions and enabling community ownership of locally generated renewable energy.
We launched our first renewable electricity generating community solar photovoltaic (PV) share offer in 2015. Since then our members have demonstrated their faith in us by investing £669,000. Their investment has funded seven solar PV installations totalling 389kWp, which have saved over 250 tons of carbon dioxide so far. We have also built one ground source heat pump.
These installations have brought clean, cheap energy to local community groups, saving them carbon and money. 221 local and national investors have joined a movement of ethical and financially rewarding community ownership which is being successfully replicated across the UK.
