Renewable Energy


Do you have a roof space that’s calling out for some solar panels?

We offer free solar PV for businesses, schools and community organisations across Beam River.

Which roofs are suitable?

  • Flat or facing west/south/east.
  • Not in need of imminent repair.
  • Preferably at least 200 m2 unshaded area (we can check this for you).
  • If you think your roof may be suitable, please get in touch.

How does it work?

  1. Feasibility checks – we’ll assess the site and send you a proposal.
  2. Studies & consents – we’ll sort out the structural survey, grid application and planning approvals.
  3. Installation & commissioning – we’ll cover all installation costs.
  4. Generation begins! We take care of O&M and sell electricity to you at a reduced rate.

We even offer a buy-back option, allowing you to purchase the system outright after three or more years. So if you later decide to take ownership of the system, you can do so at a fair price.

Why choose Beam River Cooperative?

We rely upon building good relationships with businesses and communities. For this reason, we will always be open, fair and provide an excellent service, both during development and during operation.

This means we will:

  • Share details of our financial modelling with you.
  • Always use reputable contractors, whilst remaining independent and impartial.
  • Provide testimonials (all of our partner organisations are happy with their installations!)
