Our Members > Southern Staffordshire Community Energy
Southern Staffordshire Community Energy is a community benefit society run entirely by volunteers that provide installations of PV on buildings for the local area.
In 2011 and 2016, SSCE raised the funds through two community share issues for two separate projects, which consisted of us commissioning the installation of PV panels on a number of community and hospital buildings in Staffordshire.
The organisations using the buildings benefit from free or reduced-price electricity when the panels are generating, and as a non-profit organisation, we make available for community benefit any financial surpluses not required for the development of the Society or projects. These include installations on hospitals in Stoke and Stafford and on St Giles Hospice, Whittington. Community funds provide support to a range of environmental projects and fuel poverty advice.
SSCE vision is “to further sustainability, promotion of renewable energy and energy efficiency and reducing fuel poverty”.
