Revisiting renewables

With the cost of solar having dropped significantly over the last few years and with improved battery technology meaning that energy generated doesn’t need to be used immediately, there are still real possibilities for solar installations on churches despite recent Government changes to supporting policy.  Developments in other technologies such as LED lighting mean that new options are emerging all the time for saving energy as well.  Forum for the Future has secured funding to create a partnering scheme linking communities keen to generate renewable energy and improve energy efficiency with local property owners with roofs or land to host solar panels or other renewable energy technologies.
