We have paid the Gloucestershire Resource Centre their share of the money earned from the solar panels during 2013.
With the recent storms and wet weather, it may be hard to remember the lovely summer we had last year. That fine weather has now paid financial dividends for the GRC, as they have received their share of the government feed-in tariff for the electricity generated.
The sunny weather in summer 2013 meant that the panels had a bumper year, so GCEC were pleased to be able to give the GRC £2,926.43.
Lin Mathews, Managing Director of the GRC said:
“Our Scrapstore aims to divert waste from businesses to be reused by local playgroups and schools for children’s craft activities. We are always on the lookout for sources of funding, and the payment from GCEC provides some much needed money to keep the Scrapstore running and helping the 1770 groups that use it each year. “
