Southern Staffordshire Community Energy Limited (SSCE) is a community benefit society run entirely by volunteers, and in 2011 and 2016 it raised the funds through two community share issues for two separate projects, which consisted of us commissioning the installation of PV panels on a number of community and hospital buildings in Staffordshire. The organisations using the buildings benefit from free or reduced-price electricity when the panels are generating, and as a non-profit organisation, we make available for community benefit any financial surpluses not required for development of the Society or projects.

We are pleased to say that, due to the success of these projects, we are able to launch the fourth round of our Community Fund, to which we have allocated a total of £9000. Applications to the Fund are currently being invited from community organisations in the districts of Lichfield and Cannock Chase who would like to implement energy-efficiency or sustainability projects.
