AN innovative new scheme is helping the city reach its carbon neutral goals – but needs the community to get involved. Glasgow Community Energy has been six years in the making, thanks to the dedicated work of a team of volunteers. Their efforts have now seen solar panels installed on the roofs of two schools with plans to expand the installation to buildings across the city. Now the renewable energy co-operative is calling for locals to invest in a community share scheme in a bid to raise £30,000. Glasgow Community Energy was set up in 2016 by volunteers who have been working for six years to get the project off the ground. During the lockdown last year Solar Systems were installed on the roofs of Ashton Secondary School in Easterhouse and Glendale Primary School in Pollokshields.
