Changing the UK’s energy supply market

Power to the people

Heart of England Community Energy (HECE) is the UK’s largest community energy company. With the support of Mongoose Energy, a specialist community energy developer, we recently acquired existing solar farms near Stratford-upon-Avon capable of powering 4,500 homes a year.

We want to bring these solar farms into community ownership through the formation of a community benefit society. This means that our shareholders enjoy a target 6% interest* on their investment and the region benefits as we will use surplus profits to help tackle fuel poverty through a local community fund.
