July in Transition

Standard

REP meeting, Wednesday 8 July, 7pm at RISC

Reading Energy Pioneers in conjunction with Wokingham Borough Energy Pioneers have won a substantial grant from the Urban Communities Energy Fund to help set up community solar pv projects in our area. These will be funded by community share offers and loans. These will focus on community buildings, schools and charity buildings and help these organisations to reduce their energy costs. Once the feed in tariff scheme ends these organisations will benefit from free electricity from their panels. Further any surplus income will be used to promote similar projects and to assist local charities.

If you would like to be involved we have a meeting on Wednesday evening at 7:00pm on 8th July at RISC.
