Good news! Whilst our share offer was open seven schools in Bournemouth, Poole, East Anglia and Ealing have agreed to have solar panels and join the Co-op. So we have increased the amount to be raised by this share offer to £700,000. More schools are also currently considering our offer to install solar panels for them.
This summer we installed solar panels on five schools in Ealing and one in Cambridgeshire; and in the October half term we installed solar panels on two more schools in Ealing. In November we are due to install solar panels on a children’s hospice and we have three more schools scheduled for an installation by the end of the Christmas holidays.
As more schools agree to join the Co-op and have solar panels installed we will increase the sum we are seeking to raise. At present the share offer remains open but is only being promoted in a low key way and our plan is to resume active promotion in 2019 once the number of new schools is clearer.
