We have applied for two separate grants, one to fund a share issue so that local people can own the Wadebridge Energy Company and have a share in its success, and the second to fund initial installations of roof-top solar PV in the Wadebridge area. We need your votes to make sure our projects get through to the next stage of the application process, in competition with other projects.
Use these voting buttons to go through to the Crowdfunder voting website where there are videos and text with more information, plus the all-important “Support Project” voting button. Or read more about it in our News item here – and then vote! The closing date for voting is 27th September 2014.
Our competition is with other organisations – make sure you vote for both WREN projects.
