Our purpose is to help local communities to reduce energy costs and become more sustainable by reducing their carbon footprint. More specifically we aim to raise funds from the community to enable us to install locally-owned renewable energy systems and use the surplus income from these systems to fund work that reduces people’s energy consumption – for example, by improving home energy efficiency.
This year's AGM was held via Zoom on Friday 25th September at 7:00pm, and livestreamed via our Facebook page. Full details including the agenda can be found on the Members page HERE
Moorhouse Lane Solar Array generating 4% above predicted output.
Our first project at Moorhouse Lane has now been operational since April 2015 and by the end of October 2020 had generated 10,212 MWh of clean renewable electricity and saved over 5,357 tonnes of CO2.
Moorhouse array February 2016
Moorhouse Lane Solar Array consists of 7,176 solar panels with a peak output of 1.83MW capable of generating enough clean electricity to power 500 homes.
Low Carbon Gordano Ltd continue to operate in the current Covid19 situation, providing solar generated electricity into the grid and for our partners.
All of our schemes are outperforming forecasts and we are confident that our long-term financial returns remain secure as they are backed by government guaranteed electricity supply contracts.
We are aware that we may face some challenges, but have plans to mitigate these, they include;
1. Technical issues - we may have to allow for slower response times for technical issues.
2. Staffing - electricity generation is considered an essential service and our contractors will remain available to support us.
3. Revenue - we expect some fall-off in demand from our school sites and partners but the impact on overall revenues will be relatively minor.
We do not operate from a permanent office base and the Board of Directors have been able to continue their work with suppliers, customers and managers using online communications successfully.
We have temporarily suspended our work on future projects and plans whilst we concentrate on maintaining our existing schemes.
Thank you for your continuing support as together we contribute towards a net zero carbon future.
