Want to be part of our community energy revolution?

If like us, you believe that the energy we use should come from clean, renewable sources AND benefit local communities, then join our revolution.

At Hampshire Renewable Energy Co-operative (HREC) we work hard to promote and develop community-owned renewable technologies for a greener Hampshire.

Our campaigns generate publicity and support for community energy projects throughout the county and country. Through our education program and events we raise awareness of the need and benefits of renewables for local communities.

Our priority is to develop our own renewable energy projects for your benefit!

Founded and run by volunteers, HREC is driven by the passion and enthusiasm of our members and supporters.The biggest difference you can make today is to join our co-operative.  Join US

Benefits of membership

  • regular newsletters and events
  • opportunity to network with like minded people
  • have a say in how our co-op is run
  • get involved in making a real difference to our environment and communities.
  • become part of a dynamic, fast-growing organisation that’s pushing renewable energy in Hampshire
  • support a worthwhile local scheme in its early days

At just £10 per year (more if you can afford it), your membership is important in supporting HREC in achieving our goals.

Running a co-op incurs a number of costs, and in these early development days we are spending a lot of resources on researching and developing renewable energy projects.

Your membership funds help us meet these ongoing costs. We look forward to meeting you at one of our future events.
