Brighton Energy Co-operative took their idea for a community owned solar PV project public at an open meeting at a local community centre. The night was a great success and was used to explain ideas around community-ownership and organisational models, technologies, and finances. To further support their idea, they arranged for a director from a nearby community energy co-operative – OVESCO in Lewes – to give a presentation about their group’s experience. This helped to bring the idea to life and generated a lot of enthusiasm. The email addresses collected at the end of the night formed the beginnings of the email list that is now the cornerstone of their cash-raising abilities.
