The CPH will be working with community and local organisations to identify and develop new projects
This could include: solar systems on schools, churches; NGO, sports, and community buildings; local government and other government buildings; businesses.
These can take several forms, including crowdfunded via donations from the community. This is used to pay for the solar on the host’s building. This funding solution is suitable for schools, churches, sports, and community buildings, etc.
Crowdfunding is also suitable where the host is a local government or a business that will share the benefits of the solar power with the local community.
The main alternative to crowdfunded or other donation models is ‘community investment projects’. In these the community invests the capital to fund the solar on the host’s roof, getting a return on their investment over time. The host benefits from the capital investment of the funding and also enjoys the massive benefit of cheaper electricity.
