Consumers in the West Country could soon be able to enjoy clean and cheap electricity thanks to a new initiative.
The Bristol Energy Co-operative is looking to equip community buildings in the city with nearly 200 solar panels that it believes could cut carbon emissions by 400 tonnes over 25 years.
People are being encouraged to put money into the scheme with a view to getting a return on their investment at a later date.
Mark Corbin, spokesman for the group, has described this as an "ambitious" plan that will leave a positive legacy for the "next generation".
"The project will deliver wider social benefits, with energy cost savings supporting the work of community organisations," he commented.
Mr Corbin added that the initiative "opens the benefits of green energy to all".
This comes shortly after communities across Britain were asked to raise £5,000 through the peoplefund.it website, while EnergyShare is making £25,000 available to support eco-friendly projects, so more households can enjoy clean and cheap electricity.
