Brent Pure Energy is a Community Benefit Society (a kind of co-operative) that aims to respond to the issue of Climate Change, locally, by delivering renewable energy schemes in the London Borough of Brent. 

Our first project was the very successful installation of solar panels at Queens Park Community School that went live in August 2016. 

Our second project is for two similar ones on nearby Malorees Infant & Junior schools. The share offer was launched at Malorees Schools, Christchurch Avenue, NW6 7PB in June 2019, and raised £50,000 for a total of 52 kW of solar panels. These are now installed and generating electricity.

The schools benefit from lower cost, renewable electricity at 5p/kWh. Investors are repaid capital and interest over 20 years.

With government subsidies now gone, it will be necessary to look for buildings where most of the solar electricity is consumed on site. Tenants will have to pay more for it, but at low inflation rate, so that a 20 year contract will still be attractive.

Brent Pure Energy plans to expand in Brent or neighbouring boroughs, and would like to hear from community-based organisations who need help to install solar panels on their building, enabling them to get cheap clean energy at no additional cost. BPE will pay for installation and all running costs, via a share offer, and the school or community organisation will get to keep the solar panels in the long run.
As a Community Benefit Society, Brent Pure Energy is also committed to supporting small scale energy-saving initiatives through its community fund. A limited number of grants of up to £500 are available to non-profit organisations to support initiatives such as installation of low-energy lighting, insulation or any other energy-saving ideas.
