We hope you’re keeping well, have had a good start to the year, and are starting to enjoy the slightly longer and lighter days.

We have some bits to update you on since our last newsletter. Our solar panels and our volunteers have still been working away during the colder months!

Wellington School Completion
We’re pleased to confirm the completion of the Wellington School installation, in Timperley! All solar panels are now up and producing low-carbon energy for the site, which is fantastic. It’s officially our largest site, and the school buildings are now home to 946 solar panels, generating enough electricity each year to make over 16 million cups of tea. 

Here’s photo of Kate and Ali (two of our Directors) on the roof with Ben and Phil from NPS Solar and Gemma from Wellington School. If you’d like to see more, check out this amazing drone footage – once you’ve opened the Google Photos page, click on the image to play the video.

Solar performance of existing sites
In the period October to December 2023, our nine solar arrays generated 24,428 kWh of electricity, enough to make 1.3 million cups of tea and save over 5 tonnes of CO2. Our site partners used 20,732 kWh (85% of generation) and collectively saved £1,785 on their electricity bills this quarter.

Spreading the word
We continue to spread the word about our project, and would be most grateful if you could encourage friends and family to subscribe to our newsletter at our website or to follow us on Facebook or X (Twitter).

Thank you for your support!
