Community Solar Accelerator

Published: 09 Nov 2021

Community Solar Accelerator is a European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) funded, SME (small and medium-sized enterprises) support project, delivered by Brighton Energy Co-op.

The project, that will run until 30 June 2023, aims to support the shift towards a low carbon economy in the Coast to Capital region and beyond, by promoting solar PV and electric vehicle charging use in SMEs.

Community Solar Accelerator will enable SMEs to reduce CO2 emissions by match funded grants of up to £25,000 towards either:

  • Solar PV arrays
  • Solar PV arrays and electric vehicle charging points.

Grants are available at up to 40 per cent of the total eligible costs and are paid once the work is done and paid for. Match funding of 60 per cent of the project cost will come from the SME and loans, investments, savings and company reserves can be used. However, your time can’t be included as match funding.
Eligibility criteria applies.
