Young people from Brixton are taking part in the latest solar energy project from Repowering South London.
The GCSE students are taking part in paid work experience placements to install solar panels on the roof of four buildings on the Roupell Park Estate, Brixton Hill.
The scheme is the third offering from Repowering, which is looking to attract £67,000 of investment from local people, including Roupell Park residents.
During a recent visit to the rooftop project, energy secretary Ed Davey said: “Community energy isn’t just about energy generation. It’s about communities taking the opportunity to protect themselves from rising fuel costs, reduce emissions and help local young people in the community boost their skills and experience.
“I wish Brixton Energy Solar 3 the very best of luck in their recently launched share offer and every success for the future.”
