YCE & Edinburgh Solar Co-op Tour
22 Jun 17
9:00am to 9:15pm
York Community Energy
Free - £20
This is a past event, you can no longer book tickets.
Join York Community Energy members on an exciting trip to Edinburgh to learn all about the success of the Edinburgh Community Solar Co-operative. In collaboration with Edinburgh Council, the co-operative successfully raised almost £1.5m and in 2016 installed panels on 24 public buildings in the city.
As a result of this project, 16 schools, 3 leisure centres, 2 community centres and a day centre for people with a learning or physical disability are benefiting from cheap electricity generated on site. The schools also benefit through new learning resources and the wider Edinburgh community benefits through a community fund. Come and meet Edinburgh councillor/s and co-op members who championed this joint project, and visit two or three of the solar sites.
TICKETS: We are offering 3 places for £20 (incl. rail fare subsidised by YCE) and 4 free places if you organise your own transport.
Should there appear to be no places left and you would love to come along, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org. We may be able to arrange for more.
