Our Background

Community Energy Plus is an award-winning social enterprise that provides complete energy answers to help householders in Cornwall enjoy warmer, energy efficient homes as part of a more sustainable future.

Since 1998 we have worked in partnership with a wide range of public, private and third sector organisations to support a variety of innovative projects relating to energy efficiency and renewable energy including community ownership models.

Our achievements

  • Since 1998 we have helped over 25,000 households in Cornwall to make their homes warmer and save a total of over £2.5m per year on their energy bills.
  • The projects we have assisted have contributed to over 1MW of installed renewable energy capacity in Cornwall.
  • We have secured over £1.4m worth of funding for community projects contributing to a total value of over £3.8m.
  • We have provided fuel poverty awareness training and advice to over 300 frontline health, housing and social care workers and community volunteers to help fight fuel poverty in Cornwall.

We’re a charity but also a company, which means that any surpluses made through our operations are reinvested to support our educational, environmental and research objectives.
