A renewable energy company is planning on fitting schools, churches and charity buildings across Reading with solar panels but needs to sell its shares first. Reading Community Energy has already fitted photovoltaic solar panels on six public buildings in Reading but it has plans to install them on many more. It is working closely to Reading Borough Council, (Barrow-based) Energy4All and Berkshire Energy Pioneers to try and deliver this project but it requires captial. Director Ton Cowling said: “We plan to put solar panels on community buildings in Reading and to generate funds for the local community. “This will be achieved with a community share offer, giving priority to residents and workers in Reading.
