local friends fulfilled their dream last autumn of bringing a Solar
Energy Club to South Wiltshire (www.solarclub.info).
five friends, Benji Goehl, Ian Smith, Richard Davis, Jimmy Walker
and David Croxall set up a DIY Solar Club in South Wiltshire thanks
to a grant award from the Community Innovators Millennium Awards
club provides information and training for householders on DIY installation
of solar hot water heating systems to harness the power of the sun
to meet hot water energy requirements enabling them to save between
50 and 60% of their annual requirement for domestic hot water.
club fosters a community spirit by bringing householders together
to support each other to install solar panels through shared skills,
labour, tools and equipment.
demonstration model will take on Wednesday 5th May at the Harnham
Scout hut, Lower Road, Harnham, Salisbury for 18.30h when Phil from
Low Living Impact Initiate (LILI) will give a power point presentation
on solar powered domestic hot water systems followed by practical
demo by David and Benji completing the diy construction of their
own solar panels (built by them at LILI the previous week).
not make a date in your diaries to come along for a chat to find
out more about the wonderful potential of solar power. (email@example.com).
