With the handover of the new Leominster primary school from the contractors to the Council now imminent, we are hopefully days away from being able to turn on the Sunrise Cooperative array. This news comes as we have our own good news on saving 100 tonnes of carbon dioxide (see post below). Leominster is blazing a trail for solar co-ops in the UK, setting a number of ‘firsts’, of which we are very proud.
The sooner we can get the Sunrise share offer complete, the sooner we can set to work on all the other ideas for solar co-ops in the town that are swirling around. Please do pass the word on that we only have £34,500 worth of shares remaining, as word of mouth is always the best way to find new members.

Those eagle eyed watchers may have seen… we are about to reach 100 tonnes of CO2 avoided! Another milestone reached during a good year of performance. To date, we are tracking very similar to 2013.

A new Co-op has been launched in Corwen to develop a hydro turbine in the town. The plan is for a 42kW pelton wheel turbine to generate power from the Nant Cawrddu which flows towards the town from the hills to the South.
The application to the EA has been submitted, and the planning application is close to submission. Detailed discussions have been carried out with the EA and local authority and the coop is confident of obtaining these permissions.
The coop has just launched a pioneer share offer to fund the completion of the development work. This pioneer offer aims to raise £25,200. Once the development work is complete, a larger share offer will be launched, anticipated to be for about £290,ooo to cover the full construction costs.
