Get Involved

Local people created BWCE and made it what it is today. Now at this crucial time for the planet, we need more people to join our community energy movement.

Invest and Become a Member

We continually look to raise community investment to enable us to install new solar PV systems across schools and other buildings helping them save money and reduce their environmental impact.

The minimum investment is £100 with a target annual interest rate of 5% (subject to performance). All members, regardless of how much they invest, will become voting members of BWCE with one member one vote, joining us on our mission to support communities and tackle the climate crisis.

Get involved in Green Open Homes

BWCE are leading on a partnership delivering Green Open Homes B&NES to showcase homes that have made energy efficiency improvements.

Following successful events in Bath and the Chew Valley in November 2023 we are aiming to run more Green Open Homes across Bath & North East Somerset up until March 2025. To do this we need people to get involved as local organisers, home openers and volunteers. BWCE will support all participants and our aim is to create a supportive network of likeminded and passionate people.
