Oldham Community Power aim to benefit the people of Oldham and reduce their carbon footprint, by installing community-owned renewable energy into community and council owned buildings. We are a community benefit Society, owned by the community and run by volunteers. Our founding board members are three local environmental activists and a council nominee, in recognition of the number of Council buildings involved in the project.
Encouraging people across Oldham to switch to renewable energy could have as big a carbon impact as the solar panels we have installed so far. Knowing we are helping local people to find clean electricity will encourage people to join Oldham Community Power and help members save money too. Whilst the commission we earn might not be financially huge, it will help us in important ways.Get a quote
The costs of clean energy have fallen rapidly in recent years. Moving to a tariff that includes 100% renewable electricity doesn’t mean bigger bills – in fact, most people will save money by switching.
‘Clean energy’ means power generated from the elements – sun, wind, water (rivers, tides or wave power) and biofuels (gas released by rotting food and agricultural waste). Unlike dirty electricity generated by burning fossil fuels (oil, coal and gas), clean energy has little impact in terms of climate change and air pollution.Get Started
Whenever you change supplier through a website like Big Clean Switch, your new energy company pays the website a commission. This doesn’t affect the price of the tariffs we offer, which are the same price as they are on suppliers’ own websites, and Big Clean Switch uses the income to fund its campaign. Oldham Community Power will get around a quarter of this money, which they’ll use to support local community projects, including those that help young people to gain training and employment in the environmental sector, and tackle fuel poverty. A further 8% will go to Project Dirt, which helps run the Big Clean Community Switch.
The Big Clean Community Switch is delivered by Big Clean Switch in partnership with Project Dirt. For more information about the scheme, click here.
