Energise Barnet is a community-led initiative to help local homeowners, schools and businesses generate their own energy and insulate homes and buildings. Launch will be in January 2011.
As part of it's service, Energise Barnet will establish a solar PV buying group so members can obtain bulk purchase discounts from MCS accredited installers of solar electricity systems. At a later stage, we will also arrange buying groups for schools and businesses and enable discounts on other energy saving measures such as solar heating and solid wall insulation.
Energise Barnet will operate on a social enterprise (CIC) basis in the best interests of it's members. Any surplus income from it's activities will be donated to Barnet Council to help them improve social housing and alleviate fuel poverty in the borough.
