On the 30th November three members of the Energy Group, Charles
Mossman, Ed Sharp and Hertha Wood presented an "Energy Partnership
Proposal " to the QE Resources Committee. The proposal was to
install upto 275KW of solar PV panels on QE School roofs during
2016 free of charge to QE. The panels would be funded through a
community share offer. QE would benefit from cheap electricity
contributing an estimated £6500 per annum savings for 20 years.
Investors would earn upto 5% interest on their investment and a
community fund would be produced from "profits" to benefit further
energy related projects in Crediton. The Resources Committee had
several questions which the Energy Group will answer before the
Proposal goes to the full Board of Governors later this month.
