Incorporating Wolverton Community Energy

We’ve been supporting communities across Milton Keynes since 2015 as Wolverton Community Energy. 

This year, we’re embracing our city wide reach as MK Community Energy.

Our work covers both community-owned renewable generation as well as programmes to help reduce the energy we use, cutting costs and carbon emissions in the process.  Our community stretches across the whole of the area within the Milton Keynes City boundaries.

Community-owned solar generation

We work with a wide range of individuals, businesses and voluntary and community organisations to explore opportunities to generate renewable energy and to use the resources to support local communities.

  • Generating close to 2 million kWp of community solar energy, equating to a reduction of 760 tonnes of carbon emissions.
  • Delivering community projects and great energy prices for our partner organisations.
  • Investing profits back into local community.

Home retrofit solutions

  • Home energy advice and support on everything from insulation, solar PV and heat pumps, to grants and MK retrofit stories.
  • Working with expert partners offering retrofit services like heat loss assessments and whole house plans for heat pump readiness.
  • Supporting community energy advice events across MK.
