Wednesday 5 October, 12.30pm to 3pm

Madoch Centre, St Madoes, Glencarse, Perth, PH2 7FF

Do you want to reduce your community building’s energy costs and carbon emissions? If so, the Scottish Government’s Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES) is here to help.

Funding and support is available to communities to decarbonise community buildings by installing renewable technologies such as heat pumps and solar panels.

At this event you’ll:

  • learn about how CARES can help your community
  • find out about the funding available to install renewable technologies
  • hear how St Madoes and Kinfauns Parish Church installed solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and battery storage at the Madoch Centre with the support of CARES
  • see the technologies up close and hear more about how they work
  • have time to network with other communities attending.

Local Energy Scotland, which manages CARES for the Scottish Government, will have development officers on hand to answer any questions you may have.

This event has kindly been sponsored by Locogen, community renewable energy specialists.
