Community campaigners determined to make their town the greenest in Wales are celebrating a National Lottery grant worth almost £10,000 to help tackle climate change. South Denbighshire Community Partnership (SDCP) is one of 30 organisations in Wales to receive a grant from The National Lottery Climate Action Fund worth £9,655 to boost efforts to reduce their carbon footprint and protect the environment. The funding has been invested in 24 solar panels at the Canolfan Ni Centre in Corwen, where the organisation is based, which will collectively offset an estimated 1.7tonnes of CO2 every year. In addition to providing up to 7.68 kilowatts of electricity every year for the social enterprise organisation – making estimated savings of some £800 – the excess power it generates will be fed directly into the Corwen Energy Local (CEL) scheme, benefitting local householders throughout the town by reducing energy bills and tackling fuel poverty. Margaret Sutherland, Chief Officer of the SDCP, said: “We’re proud to be involved in The National Lottery Community Fund’s Climate Top Up initiative which has enabled us to install 24 solar panels on our community centre.
