Southern Staffordshire Community EnergySouthern Staffordshire Community Energy (SSCE) is a community benefit society, and was born out of a collaboration between Low Carbon Lichfield and Whittington and Fisherwick Environment Group. It has installed solar panels on the roofs of two local community buildings using the money raised by a share issue and is currently working on its next project. www.ssce.co.uk
Chase Community SolarIn turn, Chase Community Solar was born out of Southern Staffordshire Community Energy and has fitted PV on the roofs of 314 council-owned bungalows in the Cannock, Rugeley and Hednesford areas, in what is believed to be a unique project which used community shares to fund the installations. The mostly elderly and/or low-income residents benefit from reduced energy bills or more comfortable homes. www.chasesolar.org.uk
