E.ON energy gives £19,000 cash injection to Jesmond swimming pool for solar development

Eon, one of the United Kingdoms largest Business Energy Suppliers, has presented a gift of £19,000 as part of its SOURCE commune scheme to help with the expense of establishing a thermal system powered by solar energy at Jesmond swimming pool.
All monies will be applied to assist with paying towards the cost of the solar panels for the roofing, which in turn will impart heat for the water in the swimming pool itself. Trustees of the swimming pool hope that this solar thermal installation will be the biggest of its kind in the North East of of the United Kingdom.

Community Relations Executive at E.ON, Sarah Green, states: "We're delighted to be able to contribute towards this exciting project for the North East as part of our new SOURCE scheme, which is designed to help community groups get sustainable energy projects off the ground.

"The pool's trustees are determined to lower its carbon footprint and we're confident that the addition of this solar thermal system will bring down its energy bills."

It is hoped that the new solar system will prevent the emitting of around 5,500kg of carbon dioxide every year, and so that visitors can keep an eye on its output, a unit will be located at the pools lobby area which will show how much emissions are being reduced.

Chief executive of the Jesmond Swimming Project, Glenn Armstrong stated: "We're delighted to have received this funding, without which we would have struggled to pay for such an important installation.

"By using solar power, we are demonstrating to the local and wider community the importance of controlling our carbon footprint, and at the same time reducing our annual power bills."

One of the UK's Business Gas Suppliers, Business Electricity Suppliers and leading green electricity generators, E.ON, initiated its SOURCE support early this year to aid in the expenses incurred for sustaining energy projects for buildings in communities.

The SOURCE website backs up the fund, it also grants access to information and guidance for groups in the community looking to generate their own energy and become more energy efficient or from sources which are more sustainable.

Full details of how to apply for a grant, can be found at our website

21 December 2007 is the next cut-off date for applications for funding.

I'm the kind of guy who enjoys to seek brand-new things. Presently I am manufacturing my hold pv panels. I am making it all alone without the aid of my staff. I am using the internet as the only path to acheive that. I ran across a really amazing website which explains how to contruct solar panels and so on. The website explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I am not really sure bout how accurate the info given there is. If some people over here who had xp with these things can have a see and give your feedback in the thread it will be grand and I would really value it, cauze I extremely lav solar panel construction.

Thanks for reading this. U guys rock.
