Following a model that has been successfully used elsewhere in the UK, Brixton Energy Solar 1 & 2 have been established as co-operative societies. Co-operatives are not-for-profit organisations that are jointly owned and operated by a group of people for their mutual benefit. They are democratic enterprises, operating with a one member, one vote policy. This means, for instance, that the members of the Co-operative will decide collectively who will serve on the Board of Directors and how to divide and distribute the income generated from the project (in accordance with the Rules).
Brixton Energy Solar 1 & 2 are social enterprises which seek to achieve real social and environmental outcomes. If you invest in the Co-operatives, you will be joining this collective, democratic, community-based effort to bring about real change. Although we offer a modest financial return on your investment, we hope that you will also value the wider social and environmental return that your investment will bring.
