On saturday evening we attended a party to mark the completion of the first community photo-voltaic power station in Lewes – 544 panels on the roof of Harvey’s Davey’s Lane depot, capable of feeding 98,000 kWh per year into the National Grid.
Last year we invested £500 in the scheme, and the idea of free Harvey’s beer drew us to Lewes.
Lots of grey or white bearded men, and women in long ethnic-type dresses.
The mayor turned up and said some words.
Rather disappointed not to meet more folk we knew. Thought there’d be a lot of like-minded people present. It was very alternative, as you’d expect of such an event in Lewes. Music was provided by a trio (one of the Ovesco directors, Dirk Campbell, plus a flautist/violinist and a guy playing the guts of a piano with padded drumsticks)
