Stroud community wind project

Alvington Wind Turbine Update and St Briavels Wind Turbine Open Day This Sunday 28th September  between 12 – 4pm , Great Dunkilns Farm  GL15 6QY

A very big THANK YOU for your support for the Alvington Wind Turbine and our recent Appeal win. No challenge was lodged in the statutory 6 week period, and we are delighted to share the news that the project can begin to proceed – at last!  The Planning Inspector formally recognised our Community Model and the significant public benefits (environmental, economic and social) that will result.  A high level of local support was evidenced and both ourselves and the Rogers family really appreciate your input and kind words throughout.
Drop in to experience a Wind Turbine at close quarters and meet the local team behind the Resilient Energy approach - winner of the Best Community Initiative at the Regen SW Green Energy Awards www.theresiliencecentre.co.uk
To showcase other local action for community renewables and energy efficiency, there will also be representatives from Dean Community Energy Group http://deancommunityenergygroup.wordpress.com and Severn Wye Energy Agency http://www.severnwye.org.uk.

We hope you can make it so we can thank you in person for your support and update you on the next steps for Alvington and our other community wind and solar projects locally.  We are in the process of producing a newsletter to add to our regular updates on Twitter @Resilient Energy https://twitter.com/ResilientEnergy and will keep you informed of developments regarding the community investment opportunities for Alvington and our two consented Stroud community wind turbine projects over the coming months.
