Our planet needs community energy to thrive. So Younity exists to support a growing sustainable energy movement; one that’s driven by the power and passion of local communities.

Welcome to Younity

Younity is a joint venture between Octopus Energy and Midcounties Co-operative, set up solely to support the community energy sector. We are proud to buy power from community-owned renewable energy projects (over a third of the whole sector by volume!), as well as offer short-term finance for construction costs, grants for groups to develop and even a free volunteering platform to either recruit volunteers or find a group to support!

What is community energy?

As you might have guessed, community energy is power produced at a local-level by communities to be used by the community. Crucially, the energy is produced through renewable sources like wind, solar and water, meaning it’s more kind to our planet. This energy can then be sold through ethical community energy or renewable energy tariffs… and Younity exists to make that happen. In lots of different ways.

Introducing our Powering Communities Fund

Younity is proud to partner with Your Co-op Energy. And for every customer that signs-up to the Co-op Community Power tariff, we’ll donate £10 into our very own Powering Communities Fund to support affiliated community energy groups. It’s a win-win for communities and for the environment too.
