Making Solar Panels: A workshop using recycled & scrap materials

Kees, Andre, Chris & Jason from BrixtonEnergy attended a workshop last weekend on how to make your own PV panels from scrap materials! It gave you a real understanding as to how the generation of electricity from the photo voltaic panels works and was so much fun. It was a lot simpler than you would think. How?… an old window, some plywood, broken or chipped solar cells along with a couple of other bits and bobs. It’s about half the cost of buying one in a shop and a great use for all that “scrap”. Time BrixtonEnergy pencil in a couple of dates for more workshops! Please let us know if your interested and look back here for upcoming events!

Energy workshop

Come to Robsart Street Tuesday 18 October between 9.30 and 12.30 and attend this free energy efficiency advice workshop held by Martin Abraham from Community Draught Busters. You will be surprised on what you can do to make small changes in your behaviour that will reflect in the amount of energy you use and the money you need to spent. Bring your energy bills if you want help in finding out which tariff you are paying, we can also help you to switch your provider or find a cheaper tariff. It will be an inspiring morning, you will definitely walk away with knowledge that you want to share.
