After the success of Brixton Energy Solar 1 & 2, Repowering is proud to announce Solar 3 on the Roupell Park estate, Brixton Hill.

Brixton Energy Solar 3 launched its share offer on June 6th with a ministerial visit from Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Ed Davey, and Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change, Greg Barker (see video of Ed and Greg’s comments ).

The solar panels, sited on the roof of four buildings on Brixton’s Roupell Park Estate, are looking to attract £67,000 from a range of local investors, including residents of the estate.

So please download the share offer and  buy shares in Brixton Energy Solar 3 today (deadline July 14th – minimum £250 or £50 if an estate resident). B£s cash or B£e ‘pay-by-text’ are also accepted.


  • Between June 20th and July 12th a team of young people are now undertaking paid work experience placements, and assisting with the installation of the panels.
  • Launch Party on the 9th July from 7pm at Electric Social in Brixton!
  • On July 26th, (this is a correction, moved from the 12th), the panels will be connected to the grid and will start generating clean energy and money for the local community.
Repowering and Brixton Energy Director, Agamemnon Otero, says that Solar 3 is even better than the last two, he says:

How is Brixton Energy Solar 3 even better?

  • We have involved young people from the estate with paid work experience from the very beginning. They have been doing everything from knocking on doors carrying out surveys, to learning about energy efficiency and how to make solar panels. With your support, they will now be installing solar panels on their estate!
  • The returns on this project are even higher! We project an annual return of around 4% (in addition to the 50% tax relief received via SEIS) for Brixton Energy Solar 3, as we will be using more energy onsite. That’s great for Roupell Park too, as more of the buildings will now be powered by clean renewable energy. We will also be generating more money for our unique Community Energy Efficiency Fund.
  • More clean electricity! The combined array for Brixton Energy Solar 3 will have 52.5kW installed capacity and is expected to save approximately 22 tonnes of CO2 every year.
  • Even more people can now get involved and take ownership of renewable energy. To support this, we have reduced the minimum investment to £50 for residents of the Roupell Park estate.
  • It’s now even easier and quicker to purchase your shares! Just go to, fill out your details and you’re done.
