Welcome

en10ergy Limited is a social enterprise (a Registered Society under the FCA Mutuals Registration) set up by the Muswell Hill Sustainability Group and is a member of Community Energy England.  We have two main aims:

en10ergy is like a trading company in that its members are its shareholders and they are not liable for its debts.  On the other hand its activities are not carried on for the benefit of the shareholders, but for the benefit of the community.   We have over 100 shareholders, mostly based in Muswell Hill and surrounding areas.

We generate income through the Feed In Tariff from our solar photovoltaic panels on Marks and Spencer in Muswell Hill Broadway and the Methodist Church in Pages Lane.

Woodside solar offer – now fully subscribed

Great news – our solar offer to put panels on roofs at Woodside High School in Wood Green is now fully subscribed.  The share offer, for £95,000 was launched on the positive investing platform Ethex, and took under 3 weeks to fill.  We are now planning the solar panel install which will take place in […]

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels use the sun’s energy to generate electricity that can be fed back into the Grid.

We installed solar pv panels on the roof of Marks and Spencers on Muswell Hill Broadway in July 2010.  Marks and Spencers head office have supported this as part of their Plan A programme.  We have also installed solar panels on the roof of the Muswell Hill Methodist Church on Colney Hatch Lane, completed in April 2011.

Both these projects have been funded by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) through their Low Carbon Communities Challenge.  These projects generate revenue through the ‘feed-in’ tariff that the Government pays for micro-generated electricity.   We’re using the revenue to fund further carbon emission reduction work in Muswell Hill.

These installations now provide us with the experience and financial security which allows us to initiate a another, larger project at Woodside High School in Wood Green

In 2009 the Mayor of London awarded funds to a number of London boroughs to set up Low Carbon Zones to reduce emissions by 20.12% by 2012. Muswell Hill was one of the ten zones established. The project, which launched officially on 27th February 2010, was run by Haringey Council in co-ordination with partner organisations including Muswell Hill Sustainability Group, local businesses and residents associations.  The zone included businesses and flats on Muswell Hill Broadway, the Muswell Hill Centre and the residential area off St James’ Lane on the southern slope of the hill. It included 840 residential buildings.  Householders and businesses in the Zone were helped to make lasting changes through energy audits, low cost energy-saving measures such as loft insulation and education about waste.  The project has now terminated.

en10ergy played a facilitative role in this project and has used the experience gained in the Low Carbon Zone to cut CO2 emissions in the wider Muswell Hill area.

Building on experience from the Low Carbon Zone en10ergy and Muswell Hill Sustainability Group (MHSG) together have taken forward a number of initiatives to help local residents and businesses continue reducing their carbon emissions.

The measures include:

  • negotiating bulk deals with suppliers of energy saving measures e.g loft insulation, condensing boilers, solar thermal heating
  • making householders aware of local grant schemes to allow them to implement measures as cheaply as possible
  • raising awareness in the wider community e.g. through working with local schools/parents associations and residents associations

 

To expand on the work of the Low Carbon Zone, MHSG conducted a  ‘100 houses Study’ which followed 100 households in Muswell Hill over 2 years.  This assisted participants with an initial carbon footprint assessment, agreed individual carbon reduction plans with them and provided assistance through regular surgeries with experts in household carbon reduction.  There have also been information sessions on zero-cost measures to reduce your carbon footprint, on Solar Renewables, Boilers, Insulation, Food and Waste. Supported by funds from en10ergy, MHSG continues to hold outreach events such as open homes hosted by members who have implemented energy saving improvements to their homes, and discussions of new technologies like smart meters.
