The Ben Rhydding Scout and Guide Group want to get their Group Headquarters to Net Zero!

We've been working hard to reduce the energy demand of our Group Headquarters including self funding the installation of LED lights and motion sensors as well as good insulation and double glazed windows. Now we want to work towards having our Group Headquarters becoming Net Zero.

We want to install solar panels on our Group Headquarters roof to generate renewable energy for use by the Hut directly and excess power will be put back into the grid for the wider community to access.

This will help us to lower our carbon footprint as well as engage our Scout & Guide groups on sustainability initiatives, build resilience to our power supply and importantly be part of the wider community action to mitigate climate change. Solar panels will also reduce our energy bills allowing us to invest more into our young people and activities.

Any contributions to help our Group get to net zero would be very appreciated.

We are also offering sponsorship of the solar panels. For £450 per panel or £225 per half panel, your name/business will be recognised as a supporter in a plaque within our hut. Please contact us directly on sponsorship (do not donate via this website). We would also be happy to hear from businesses that could help us in achieving our goal. Email: benrhyddingscoutguidegroup@gmail.com

Many thanks for your support

(Note our target for fundraising on here will reduce as we receive sponsorship or other grants etc for the panels - thank you to our generous sponsors!)
