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 yorkcommunityenergy@gmail.com. We may be able to arrange for more.
