Our energy, our future

Home

We need to go back to the future, take control of our energy use, improve and expand our local supply chains and create a sustainable future for Wadebridge and the surrounding area.
 
WREN has so far been very successful in helping people install their own solar panels, but many people and organisations cannot afford the up-front cost. So WREN is setting up the Wadebridge Energy Company, a community-owned, not-for-profit company, which amongst other things will fund the installation of roof-top solar panels on local domestic, commercial and community-owned buildings such as schools and clubs.

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.
 
WREN is for everybody! Around this website you can find out about different activities WREN is involved in, whether that is funding Community projects, helping people save energy, facilitating access to renewable technologies to generate clean, low carbon energy, buying stuff through our shop, or working with businesses for that sustainable future. To find out more about our aims and ethos, find out more at About WREN.
