Avalon Community Energy members, supporters, and partners celebrated the society’s new solar PV installations with an event at Brookside Academy Primary School in Street on Monday 9th January 2017.
ACE Chair Jon Cousins said: “Today we marked the official launch of the ACE solar panels on Brookside Academy in Street and Spartan Games at Evercreech Junction. We were joined by Wells MP James Heappey and other friends and supporters, celebrating what has been achieved so far and exploring next steps.”
The programme for the event included presentations by Brookside’s Headteacher Brian Walton and the MP, and the screening of eco-activist Theo Simon’s film ‘Green power to transform the South West’.
Avalon Community Energy’s installations at Evercreech Junction and Street will generate clean, safe renewable electricity – saving 52 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year – and the profits will be used to establish a community benefit fund to help support initiatives in the local community and ensure that residents benefit directly from ACE’s work.
A huge thank you to all our members and supporters for making all this possible!
