About SE1 Solar

We are a community benefit society

SE1 Solar energy has been established by members of the south-east London community to provide renewable energy locally. We have been set up as a Community Benefit Society, which means we are a charitable business managed for the benefit of the community. It’s is run by its members, and membership is open to everyone in our community.

Our aims

  1. Reduce energy costs for our neighbourhood
    Make cheaper, cleaner energy accessible to people in our community, so that no-one has to choose between keeping the lights on and putting food on the table.
  2. Generate green power in SE1
    Empower our community to produce solar power and reduce wasted energy, so that we can be more self-sufficient and save money.
  3. Cut pollution and our impact on the environment
    Cut cost, waste and pollution and reduce SE1’s carbon footprint, doing our bit to create a better world for ourselves and our children

Our principles

As a community benefit society we will deliver our aims for the good of everyone in our local community. We want to reflect the strength and diversity of SE1. That means we are looking for members and volunteers from all walks of life.
