As a prelude to our 2015 energyshare funding application, we made a short video (above) to attract votes on Crowdfunder. We got 158 supporters, beating the competition for “Pot 1” funding.

How it all started…

It all began when representatives of Community Energy Plus came to chat to us about projects currently active in Cornwall.  Community Energy Plus is an “award-winning social enterprise that provides complete energy answers to help householders in Cornwall enjoy warmer, energy efficient homes as part of a more sustainable future” (direct quote from their website). They are funded by a number of organisations including Cornwall Council, NHS Cornwall & Isles of Scilly, the Department for Energy and Climate Change, and with money from the Big Lottery Fund.

As a result, a number of meetings followed, and a group of about 25 individuals emerged with an interest in forming a proper association.  In November 2014 we obtained funding from energyshare.  This money (£10,000) has been used to work out and implement a proper structure for SHARE, to pay for feasibility studies for possible renewable energy projects in the Parish, and to initiate our first major project.
