NEWS: Solar Panel meeting - Wednesday 19 May; Core Group Reshuffle

Solar Panel Meeting - 19 May
Since the last bulletin there has been a healthy interest in the TN solar panel scheme, and about 30 people have filled out the survey monkey - thank you!

There are many questions that people have, and so we have invited 2 representatives from Solarcentury in London to come to a specially convened meeting in Norwich to cover everything there is to know about this scheme. The meeting will take place at The Greenhouse on Wednesday May 19th, 7.30 p.m. A DVD will also be shown and the two reps will explain how the feed-in-tariff works and how the third party ownership will work. Everyone who has responded to the survey will be invited directly, but this meeting is open to anyone who is interested in installing photovoltaics.(Chris Hull/Core Group)

The Greenhouse, Bethel Street. Wednesday 19th May, 7.30 - 9.30 p.m (including DVD showing). For further info contact Chris Hull chrishull@phonecoop.coop (01603 664928)

Core Group reshuffle

The core group is changing its membership. Christine Way and Chris Hull, as the longest serving members, are due to stand down at the end of July 2010. The group decided some time ago that we should have a revolving membership and recently we decided that the best way of 'revolving' is to have the longest-standing 2 members to stand down each year (in July), to make way for 2 new members to join. This way there is both continuity and fresh input of energy and ideas. The other current 4 members - Tully Wakeman, Jane Chittenden, Alex Haxeltine and Tom Harper - will remain.

If you are interested in becoming a core group member, the broad criteria are:
• to have done the transition training ( or be signed up to do it)
• to be able to demonstrate a commitment to Transition Norwich through work thus far
• to be able to commit to the group for a minimum of 2 years

The core group is not an executive body, but functions to bring together the different strands of TN and review general progress. Some transition groups do not have a core group, but in TN we decided, through general consensus, to continue with it.

The process for recruiting/joining will be announced in the June bulletin, but meantime if anyone is in principle interested, do feel free to contact any of the current 6 core group members for a chat. (Chris Hull/Core Group)
