Egni: Opportunity to Invest in Wales First Solar PV Cooperative
Wales’s first solar PV cooperative, Egni, has raised over £15,000 within two weeks of being
launched at the Senedd in Cardiff.
Egni has been developed by Awel Aman Tawe (AAT). Egni will install solar panels on 7 community buildings. As Climate Change starts to bite, this is a chance for people to take action. This model has been used successfully by a number of other cooperatives in the UK and abroad to support local projects.
Share offers are open until April 3rd 2014. Documents available at the Environment Centre or at www.egni.coop
