Swansea Community Energy Shares Launch

swansea-community-energySCEES Community Share Offer Launch Event

Monday 7th November, 6.30pm

Swansea Business School UWTSD, High Street, Swansea, SA1 1NE

I am very pleased to be inviting you to attend the launch event of Swansea Community Energy and Investment Scheme’s (SCEES) first community share offer.

SCEES was initiated by Swansea Council and is now a community benefit society which is directed and managed by a group of local enthusiasts. SCEES’ vision is about creating ‘a better future for everyone’.

For our first project, we are realising this vision through generating renewable energy using 360kWp of solar PV mounted on the roofs of nine schools and one care home in and around the Townhill and Penderry wards. The 1440 solar panels which we have already installed are generating a revenue which in part will be distributed to individuals and organisations that subscribe to the rules of our society and who wish to invest in our community share offer; but most of the revenue will go into a community benefit fund that will be used for building skills and enterprise prioritising people and projects within 1 mile of the host buildings; in addition, those buildings will receive cheaper cleaner electricity, and our collective carbon footprint will be reduced.

Please come and find out more about our project and the people behind it…. 6.30pm for a glass of wine or cup of tea/coffee shortly followed by a presentation and Q & A.

If you could please RSVP using the following link (https://scees-launch.eventbrite.co.uk) or by sending us an email (secretary@swanseacommunityenergy.org.uk) or by making a quick call (07547 520315) we would be very grateful.

Looking forward to seeing you on Monday 7th November.

Faithfully,

Gareth Tucker

SCEES Chairman
