How it works
We want more businesses and individuals to power their homes and workplaces through community-produced energy. That means buying through ethical tariffs… and there’s none better than Co-op Energy’s Community Power Tariff.
For every new customer that switches to Co-op’s Community Power Tariff, we’ll add a tenner to the Community Power Fund pot. No questions, no quibbles… we love doing it.
Throughout the year community groups from across the country will apply for financial grants to help them start or improve their community energy project. And twice a year we’ll dip into our pot to give away free financial grants to the successful applicants.
Considering Younity is a newbie in the world of community energy, we’re pretty excited to have already donated thousands of pounds. That means groups like Southill Community Energy, Brighton Energy Co-operative and Awel Aman Tawe can continue to change the way we produce and consume power.Apply for the fund
Community Power Fund case studies
Harbury Energy Initiative
The Harbury Future Energy project needed to purchase and erect a wind data monitoring and recording device for them to gain more accurate estimates of potential energy generation.
Southill Community Energy
Southill Community Energy (SCE) requested funds for the purchase and installation of cattle fencing at Southill, to allow conservation grazing on the southern portion of the site.
SELCE is committed to fighting fuel poverty amongst the most vulnerable residents in South East London. They will use the money to produce two films; one explaining how they can support clients struggling to pay their fuel bills and another explaining how to fit light measures.
Awel Aman Tawe
Awel Aman Tawe wanted to develop an online education resource pack for teachers, youth groups and home educators on renewable energy, co-ops and low carbon solutions to climate change. Where better to invest the Younity Community Power Fund?
Brighton Energy Co-op
Creating opportunities for school leavers and graduates to learn about running an environmental business? That's a cause Younity just had to help. Our Community Energy Fund allowed young people to learn about sustainable energy, whilst being fully paid for seven weeks of full-time work.
