Help support Community Renewable Energy in Salford

Moss Community Energy Group has joined forces with Greater Manchester Community Renewables to launch a share offer to fund the installation of solar panels at Primrose Hill Primary School in Ordsall, Irlam Primary & Fiddlers Lane Primary in Irlam, and The Fuse, a community building in Partington.

This will save them money, reduce carbon emissions and inspire children (and grown-ups!) to learn about energy and climate change.  Members who invest receive up to 5% interest on their shares, subject to the performance of the Society, and surpluses will go into a Community Fund to support eco-friendly projects in the local area.

To find out how you can help GMCR raise the £186,000 needed by the end of June to ensure that all four sites get their solar panels, visit The minimum investment is £100 and applications are welcome from organisations as well as individuals.

Please share with your networks to make sure everyone gets chance to be part of it.
