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)

From fracking to opencast, biofuels to nuclear, energy companies are turning to more and more extreme ways to extract energy. Despite their nightmarish variety, these tecnologies are connected by their disastrous impacts, and by the corporate agendas driving them.How do we make our resistance to all these forms of extreme energy just as connected? As part of the Frack Free February month of action, local coalition, Frack Free Somerset in collaboration with Frack Off and Bristol Rising Tide are leading a workshop on community resistance to extreme energy. The workshop will look at what 'extreme energy' is and place these developments in the context of the bigger picture before looking at models of resistance around the world. There will be the chance to hear activists from: Rising Tide Australia, involved in the 'Lock the Gate' & Coal Seam Gas Free Communities. The Copenhagen (Denmark) based network The Climate Collective, who are mobilising against shale gas extraction and fracking in Denmark with the initiative Skifergas - Nej tak! (shalegas no thanks!) Biofuel Watch Stop New Nuclear and the campaign against Hinkley Point C and the local resistance to fracking and coal bed methane in Somerset Community resistance in the UK will then be explored as well as next steps for Somerset & the South West. http://risingtide.org.uk/bristol http://frack-off.org.uk
