We hope you’re keeping well and are feeling reasonably festive, though days are a little shorter and darker at the moment.

We have some bits to update you on since our last newsletter. Our solar panels and our volunteers have all been busy and productive during the summer!

Share Offer Update
We’re pleased to share that the fundraising target for the Wellington School solar array has been achieved with the help of some impact investors. These are individuals and a foundation who are investing specifically for the positive impact on society that our GMCR project will have.  This means the installation work can now proceed!

Solar performance of existing sites
In the period July to September 2023, our nine solar arrays generated 94,326 kWh of electricity. This is broadly in line with budget and enough to make 5 million cups of tea and save over 21 tonnes of CO2.

Our site partners used 67,556 kWh (72% of generation) and collectively saved a massive £39,864 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 here or to follow us on Facebook or X (Twitter).

Thank you for your support!

With best wishes for the festive season,

On behalf of the GMCR Board
