Rooftop renewables

CPRE is running a national campaign to urge the government to fully realise the potential of solar on rooftops. Be a part of it, and help us kick start a rooftop revolution.

So far two of our local MPs, Richard Fuller (North Bedfordshire) and Mohammad Yasin (Bedford and Kempston), have signed up as parliamentary Rooftop Solar Champions!

We believe there is vast potential for siting solar energy panels on the rooftops of buildings and utilising brownfield sites rather than using valuable farmland and the countryside.


Sign the petition

We’re calling on the government to set a new and ambitious target for generating clean and affordable electricity from rooftops across the country. At this critical time, will you call on the government to act?


Get involved – volunteer Solar Energy Contact

Solar sites are a key issue for the countryside in Bedfordshire. We’re recruiting a volunteer Solar Energy Contact to build our on-the-ground knowledge of new and existing solar development proposals and signpost people concerned about proposals  to planning information and local action groups.    As Solar Energy Contact, you’ll be supporting people in Bedfordshire to take action for the benefit of the countryside and communities, gather vital local knowledge and help us to build stronger links to local communities, campaigns and organisations.

This is a flexible home-based role, so you can carry out tasks around your other commitments.
