We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded nearly £20,000 from the Rural Community Energy Fund (RCEF) to do a feasibility study into generating 2MW of solar-powered electricity from business, farm and public sector roofs in the Falmouth and Penryn area.
If the installations go ahead, it is hoped that FEP will be able to employ a dedicated Energy Manager who will work on issues around fuel poverty, energy saving and renewable energies.
“We are very pleased to be able to do this study” said Charmian Larke, Chair of FEP. “There are many very large roofs in Falmouth and Penryn that would be suitable and it would be great to benefit not only the farms, businesses and organisations by selling them cheaper electricity but ultimately our whole community by helping alleviate fuel poverty and by providing greater energy security.
The project runs for the next six months. If you think you have a suitable large roof, or want more information about FEP, please contact us here or look for Fal Energy Partnership Ltd on Facebook.
