support local communities to create solar co-ops

support local communities to create solar co-ops

What change do you want to make now to address the climate change crisis? Provide better financial, technical, legal and planning support for communities to ramp up the number of solar cooperatives for fitting solar on schools, sports clubs, homes, etc. Currently there’s not enough financial incentives, too many legal barriers, too many middle men trying to cream a profit, too many legal issues on liability/roof ownership, and restrictive planning and grid connection barriers. What do you need to make this change? Scottish Government to look at how to support the growth in community owned power generation, solar development and all the current barriers that exist.


I would love to avail myself of solar power but I am unable to do so because I live in a factored flat complex. Make it easier to utilise balconies to install panels etc
