Renewable electricity supplier Good Energy hopes to raise £1 million for building green power projects after a “crowd-funding” party to drum up interest.

Crowdfunding platform Trillion Fund hosted the bash where projects bid for investment from guests.

Investors were asked to put money into the energy firm’s solar farms in the South West of England for a return.

Juliet Davenport, founder and CEO of Good Energy said: “Crowdfunding has revolutionised the way we think about raising funds for renewables projects and is something that is new to us.

“Many of our customers are our investors – they believe in what we’re doing to tackle climate change. Now is your chance to invest in us and become a customer too, and help fund the transition to a 100% renewable future.”

The Trillion Fund is backed by fashion designer and eco-activist Dame Vivienne Westwood and Good Energy supplies renewable electricity to the brand’s retail stores and office buildings in the UK.
