Talks for other groups

Brighton Energy Co-operative emailed many local organisations and offered to give a presentation about their community owned solar PV project. Often groups were receptive: the idea of something new, local and progressive is an innovative addition to a list of meetings and events. Over the course of a year or so this became a vital avenue for building local support, even in instances where it felt like futile hard work. One presentation was given at a meeting at which five people attended. Two nodded off during the slideshow. Two years later, however, the three who stayed awake that night invested £45,000 into the project. You just never know!
