    Sight Concern Worcestershire


    Solar Panels for our Centre will help us reach more blind and partially sighted people and increase building hire by the community
    Sight Concern Worcestershire

    This project will provide blind and partially sighted individuals from across Worcestershire with an accessible community centre that is cost effective whilst minimising its impact on the environment. Savings made will help us develop further services to enable blind and partially sighted people to lead independent and fulfilling lives & overcome the daily challenges of living with sight loss.

    We have carried out a review into our energy use and had the building inspected for its suitability for a solar installation. We have invited quotations for a 15KW array to be placed on our south facing roof and recieved competitive prices and budgeting information. We have checked with the local planning department that our proposed installation is permitted development.

    Reduced energy costs will enable us to open up the centre to community groups for hire, when not in use by our own clients. Funds raised through hire will help fund additional services for blind and partially sighted people to overcome the daily challenges of living with sight loss.
