Unlocking the Power of Community – Energy Fair 2016

Unlocking the Power of Community is the theme for our annual energy fair on Saturday October 15th which will take place in Local Matters community space in Elbow Lane, Tavistock, from 10:00 until 15:00.

This is very apt as we work to complete our Community Solar Project to put community owned solar panels on a number of roofs across the area. These solar roofs enable our host sites to reduce their energy costs and be renewable generators. Any surplus is used to support fuel poverty and energy advice locally.

The local community has come together to raise £110,000 to finance part of the project and we’ll be launching a community share offer later in the year.

Our energy fair will be bringing together local leading local renewable energy suppliers, retrofit specialists and community energy and environmental groups from across Devon and Cornwall including New Generation Energy, The Fell Partnership, Mike Wye (natural building products), Sungift and ZLC Energy and The Utility Warehouse.

Please come along, find out more about what we’re doing at Local Matters, talk to our exhibitors and learn about Tamar Energy Community’s first community financed project.
