Anthony recently met with representatives of South Brent Community Energy Society to learn more about their community energy initiative. South Brent Community Energy Society was established by members of Sustainable South Brent to build a wind turbine for the benefit of the community.
Sustainable South Brent sets an incredible example of how local community partnerships can be created for the benefit of an area. Their wind turbine has raised thousands of pounds which has been spent on local community projects such as the South Brent village hall roof, the GPs surgery and the church. Perhaps most importantly it has also helped to provide green electricity to the grid and example to other local sustainability groups.
We can do far more to support local groups like Sustainable South Brent and explore other forms of green technology such as tidal and solar.
