Who We Are:
Bury Community Hydro is a trading name for Bee Sustainable Ltd, a local co-operative of volunteers working together to provide the chance for the local community of Bury to take care of their environment and provide the resources to make a difference in generating sustainable green energy.
To foster sustainable community regeneration, to promote community owned renewable energy and enable communities to tackle climate change at a community level.
We aim to develop, own and operate community owned renewable energy schemes. This means that we are run by and for local people. Our profits will be re-invested into the organisation to support local sustainability, and implement the latest technologies.
All of our work is carried out by volunteers. Community ownership provides the opportunity for local people to own shared assets democratically and have a real say on how their community and its environment is shaped.
Cooperative Principles which we will work to are:
- Self help and self-responsibility
- Opportunities for education
- Member economic participation
- Honesty and openness
- Democracy and equality
- Concern for community
- Autonomy and independence
- Social responsibility
- Co-operation among co-operatives
