Welcome to Wolverton Community Energy.
We are working with individuals and businesses in Wolverton and the wider Milton Keynes area to help them become more energy efficient and to reduce the amount of carbon they use. We take a long-term view – our ultimate aim is to help our community reach carbon net zero.
We have a strong track record and have already completed a number of successful projects. We are currently exploring a range of other ways to harness renewable energy sources – from solar PV installations to hydro, and from biomass to LED lighting retrofits.
We fund our capital expenditure by offering opportunities to investors who are looking for commercial rates of return but want to make a difference to local communities too. You can register an interest in our next investment opportunity now.
We aim to invest 50% of our profits back into the local community, with a particular focus on relieving fuel poverty for the most vulnerable.
Our work is supported by partnerships with a diverse number of groups. We also work closely with Future Wolverton Limited, a community-led organisation that has been delivering benefits for local people since 2002.
Heat Pump Readiness Pilot – EU POTEnT programme with Milton Keynes Council. We tested 25 homes across Bow Brickhill, Wavenden and Woburn Sands to assess how leaky the fabric of their homes were and whether they were ready to fit an air source heat pump.
