A SCHEME to provide solar power to Warwick and Stratford hospitals is up and running.
South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust marked the completion of the first phase of the innovative community-led scheme with a morning visit by Warwick and Leamington MP Chris White, along with members of Community Energy Warwickshire, the organisation which funded the installation of solar panels on roofs at the two hospitals.
The collaboration marked the first time an NHS trust had ever worked with a community-based group on a renewable energy project which saw Community Energy Warwickshire raise £110,000 through the issuing of shares.
Trust chief executive Glen Burley said: “We are pleased we now have solar panels on both Warwick and Stratford Hospitals. It has been great to work with the community on such an exciting project.”
The next stage will offer free membership of Community Energy Warwickshire’s Energy Savers scheme to all trust staff, who will also be offered free training on ways to save energy at home and at work.
