Would you like low cost energy from a renewable source installed for free right on your roof? Reading Community Energy Society is actively looking to expand our portfolio of buildings on which we install solar panels for free.
With rising energy prices and businesses being squeezed by increasing costs, many of us are looking to renewable energy generation for solutions.
Reading Community Energy Society provides and installs solar panels on roofs around Reading at no cost to the building owner. The building user then purchases the electricity generated at a price lower than current rates.
Our roster of buildings includes business parks, churches, schools, the University of Reading, and a leisure centre to name a few. And we’d love to add you to the list!
The most viable buildings typically have a large, unshaded, roof space of at least 50 square metres. South facing roofs in a good state of repair are perfect, as are buildings that would themselves use most of the electricity generated.
Buildings can be used for any purpose from commercial buildings such as factories, technology centres and retail stores, to schools and colleges, offices, museums or care homes. Ideally the building user should have high daily electricity consumption throughout the year to be most suitable.
We welcome applications throughout the greater Reading area and look forward to hearing from you!
