He is look to run the initiative as a cooperative with Croydon residents who are able to invest by buying panels.
Mr Enebe said, “We need to build community support for the idea at the moment. Croydon has got that feel at the moment, with the Transition Town and Tech City. It is about bringing people together to help take pride in Croydon and have a stake in the future of Croydon.”
Mr Enebe has been living in the borough for about a decade now and has won several awards for his works.
