A Community Share Offer issued by Reading Community Energy Society to raise funds to install solar photovoltaic (PV) panels on the roofs of community buildings in and around Reading was fully subscribed in just two weeks. Reading Community Energy Society plans to use the funds to deliver just over 350kW of solar PV through installations on 16 community buildings including schools, places of worship and community centres. The main aim of the project is to help reduce energy bills of the community buildings involved, improve the sustainability of our community, reduce climate change emissions and improve energy security.
The first system was installed on the roof of the headquarters of Just Around the Corner headquarters, with a second system hosted by Caversham Park Village Association and other installations underway. Find out more on the Reading Community Energy Society web site.
Well done RCES.
