Our planet needs community energy to thrive. So Younity exists to support a growing sustainable energy movement; one that’s driven by the power and passion of local communities.
Welcome to Younity.
All around the country, community groups of all shapes and sizes are working together to change the way we produce and consume power, through locally-led renewable energy projects. With the support of our friends at Your Co-op Energy and Octopus Energy, Younity is here to make sure they succeed. In fact, we won’t rest until community energy has earned its place at the heart of sustainable power.
What is community energy?
As you might have guessed, community energy is power produced at a local-level by communities to be used by the community. Crucially, the energy is produced through renewable sources like wind, solar and water, meaning it’s more kind to our planet. This energy can then be sold through ethical community energy or renewable energy tariffs… and Younity exists to make that happen. In lots of different ways.What is community energy?
Introducing the Co-op community power fund
Younity is proud to partner with Co-op Energy. And for every customer that signs-up to the Co-op Community Power tariff, we’ll donate £10 into our very own Community Power Fund to support affiliated community energy groups. It’s a win-win for communities and for the environment too.How to change your tariff

Our latest energy projects
Tamar Energy Community
Tamar Energy Community are working with a researcher at Plymouth University on how best to utilise and access substation and domestic meter data. They want to combine this information to help them develop a young person's net zero champions community at each of their solar sites. The funding will allow them to secure SMETS meter data, provide engagement materials and external support for working with young people.
Ynni Ogwen Cyf
Ynni Ogwen Cyf would like to expand their existing community solar scheme, which provides clean electricity to community owned buildings. The funding will finally allow them to install PV’s and a battery to assist with the site becoming even more self-sufficient.
Working in partnership with:
Repowering London developed ReCreate, an education programme for Y5 Primary school children to teach them about climate change in an age-appropriate and positive way through the art of drama. The grant will help them deliver a ReCreate pilot in a London primary school, with a view to rollout out the scheme to as many schools as possible.

Gloucester Community Energy Co-operative
By installing solar panels on community buildings, and developing suitable sites for wind and hydro schemes, GCEC aims to give everyone in Gloucestershire a chance to benefit from low carbon, locally generated electricity.
Low Carbon Hub
The Low Carbon Hub develops community-owned renewable energy installations across Oxfordshire that not only produce clean energy but accelerates the transition to a zero-carbon energy system,
