Urban Partnership/The Masbro Centre – Crowdfund
The Edward Woods Community Centre is a vibrant community centre with over 2000 visitors each week (pre-Covid). We pride ourselves on providing an informal non-judgemental space where residents can take part in or initiate any number of low cost or no cost activities. In 2018, we began to explore the feasibility of generating our own electricity. After lots of advice & support and successfully raising funds and installing solar panels at our sister site (The Masbro Centre) in 2019/20, we decided that it was time for Edward Woods to take the plunge and join the solar revolution! We plan to install 92 solar panels, generating 24,416kw hours per year! As an integral part of the Hammersmith & Fulham Community we are not only committed to reducing our carbon footprint but also to continue to deliver a diverse range of projects for our community. We will launch our panels with a ‘community clear up day’ involving all the groups/clubs that use the centre, residents and local schools.
What we’ll deliver:
- Edward Woods will produce its own green energy source, approximately 29,000 kwh per year
- 15.3 tons of Carbon Emissions stand to be saved each year
- Money saved or generated, estimated at £150k over 20 years, will be spent community projects
