Install a solar pv array with LOW CARBON HUB

Could you be saving money on energy bills and cutting carbon emissions?

We build and manage community-owned renewable energy projects with businesses, schools, and communities across Oxfordshire.

Work with Low Carbon Hub to install a community-owned solar PV array and:

  • Host a solar PV array on your rooftop – at no cost to you
  • We are a trusted and experienced local partner, with over 50 projects in operation
  • We take full responsibility for the operation, maintenance, and insurance for the array for the lifetime of our roof lease with you
  • You benefit from using the renewable energy generated on site, buying it at a discounted rate directly from us
  • Your energy generation benefits the community – our profits are used to fund further carbon-cutting activities and support the local community.

We’re looking for sites with:

  • A roof large enough to host an array (e.g. 250 m2, roughly the size of two tennis courts – see our video below on how to measure your roof)
  • Building has significant day-time energy use (approx. 400 mWh/pa)
  • Not north-facing
  • Owner-occupied or with a 10 + year lease in place.

Check to see if your roof is a suitable size for a Low Carbon Hub solar PV array in our short video:
