Today, representatives from CoRE50 and E.ON joined with students from three local schools to celebrate the introduction of renewable energy to Ackers Adventure. Together, they enjoyed E.ON’s interactive ‘Town of Total Darkness’ performance and investigated the photovoltaic system, which will save Ackers Adventure £400 per a year on their energy bills.
Kelvin Staple, Manager of Ackers Adventure, was delighted that the day had helped to strengthen the relationship between them and the wider community:
“It was a brilliant and fun morning. There was so much enthusiasm from everyone and the kids (including the big ones) loved it. I hear they were still talking about it when they got back to school.
It also fitted perfectly as one class were working on a project about light and energy and we got the teacher to point out the electricity substation on their way back.“
CoRE50 were really pleased: the community coming together to own, benefit from and understand renewable energy is exactly what we want from our projects, and we hope that the relationship between the local schools and Ackers Adventure continues for many years to come. Many thanks to E.ON for helping us to make it happen.
