We currently have over 60 members with whose help, we have so far successfully raised £61k  to install, own and operate a solar PV system at Chester’ Northgate Arena leisure centre. This project generates community owned renewable energy , whilst creating a community fund for further investment in new projects and return interest to our members on their shares.
