Nov 21st – “Local Solar Farm for Local People”
We were delighted to welcome Anthony Woolhouse, a founder of the West Solent Solar Cooperative, who talked about the creation of our own local Solar Farm in Pennington. The Cooperative also works with local groups, especially schools, and is active in a number of funded environmental projects. Anthony gave us a fascinating insight into Lymington’s part in a global movement for greener energy.
Anthony’s talk was followed by an active Q & A session, and he told me he appreciated the quality of the questions from our members, and our evident interest in this local green initiative. The solar farm produces enough power for around 700 homes, and all gest consumed within a few miles, so it truly serves Lymington and Pennington.
