Advice and Support for Local Community Projects

We encourage proactive relationships with community energy establishments and energy hubs. We partner with several third parties in Scotland and England providing advice, support, and funding to customers seeking to start a community energy project. These groups work with organisations and their stakeholders to support the development of local, renewable energy.
