Community Organisation Offers 1/2 Price Solar to Homes in Areas that Need it Most
A pioneering energy-saving community group based in St Werburghs has devised a scheme to help Bristol go solar - more affordably. Called 'Let’s Go Solar', the scheme is looking for Bristol homeowners interested in having a solar-powered hot water system installed in their home for around half the normal price. The energy-saving kits use the power of the sun to heat hot water, enabling homeowners to save on fuel bills as well as reduce their individual carbon footprint.
Particularly welcome are homes deemed deprived according to government statistics such as some parts of St Agnes, St Pauls, Lockleaze, Eastville, Easton, Ashley Down, St Werburgh’s, Knowle, Hartcliffe, Fishponds etc.
Thanks to securing both government funding and local bargaining power, the not-for-profit community group, Ashley Vale Action Group (AVAG), has cut the typical cost of installing solar-powered hot water heating from around £5,000 to approximately £2,500.
Ashley Vale Action Group was one of 38 UK-wide groups, and the only Bristol group, to successfully bid for a share of £3 million from the UK government. The government scheme aims to make renewable technologies accessible to more people in its effort to help reduce the UK’s overall carbon dioxide emissions. In addition, Let’s Go Solar has cut the costs even further by negotiating with nine local solar installers to use their collective power to buy hot water heating kits in bulk.
We should receive expressions of interest by the 28th February, with the majority of systems installed by the end of March so contact us today to check your eligibility and to arrange a free and non-binding survey of your home.
Monday February 4th, 8pm., Cube Cinema, Bristol Entry £3/£4 (But nobody turned away due to lack of funds)

Book Launch – Physical Resistance: A Hundred Year’s of Anti-Fascism by Dave Hann
Large-scale confrontations, disruption of meetings, sabotage and street fighting have been part of the practice of anti-fascism from the early twentieth century until the twenty-first. Rarely endorsed by any political party, the use of collective bodily strength remains a strategy of activists working in alliances and coalitions against fascism. In Physical Resistance famous battles against fascists, from the Olympia arena, Earls Court in 1934 and Cable Street in 1936 to Southall in 1978 and Bradford 2010, are told through the voices of participants. Anarchists, communists and socialists who belonged to a shifting series of anti-fascist organizations relate well-known events alongside many forgotten but significant episodes.
