Brixton Energy Solar 2 Annual General Meeting

Last Monday the first Annual General Meeting of Brixton Energy Solar 2 took place at the Loughborough Centre, Brixton. Thanks to everybody who attended. For those of you who couldn’t make it we recorded Agamemnon Otero giving the director’s report.

We have also made the minutes available online and the accounts available online for anyone who is interested.

It has been a big year for Brixton Energy and we want to thank all of our investors for being part of this groundbreaking project. We look forward to building on the success of Brixton Energy Solar 2 in the next year through the social returns provided via the Community Energy Efficiency Fund and through new projects such as Brixton Energy Solar 3 which is open for investment.
