FEBRUARY GREEN DRINKS

Date: 
17 February, 2016 - 20:00 - 22:00
GREEN DRINKS
WEDNESDAY 17th FEBRUARY

THE SUN INN, HIGH STREET, FROM 8PM

Green Drinks is on the 17th of every month, regardless what day that falls - this month it will be on a Wednesday so the pub shouldn't be too busy or noisy.
 
We usually suggest a discussion topic to start the conversation going - recent ones have been the Community Orchard, the Paris Climate Talks, environmentally friendly holidays, transition through the arts ... not that we ever stick to topic of course, the conversation wanders all over the place, as you'd expect! Last month we talked a lot about our exciting new project to install a big floating solar array near Buxton.
 
We haven't set a topic yet for February, so if you've something you want to raise please let us know.
 

Come along, see old friends and make new ones.We hope to see you there. More information from Charles.

 

WATERSWALLOWS SOLAR ARRAY

WATERSWALLOWS FLOATING SOLAR ARRAY
 
A COMMUNITY RENEWABLE ENERGY PROJECT
 
It's early days, but when we spotted an article about a floating solar array at Godley Reservoir near Hyde, we wondered if that might work round here. We soon realised that we had a pretty good lake near Buxton - the old quarry pit at Waterswallows. A brownfield site, designated for industrial use, not overlooked by or used by anyone, and it's very big. Even better it's very near to the main substation that feeds Buxton and to large power users such as Tunstead Quarry.
