MP Roger Godsiff saw what Balsall Heath Church Centre has done with its solar roof, on a recent visit organised by Friends of the Earth. He was visibly impressed and undertook to help to make the case for  support for community renewable energy schemes.

The vicar Rev Catherine Grylls made the point that community services such as those that the church centre provides really need the income which renewable energy can bring. The roof is one year old and has produced what was predicted by the suppliers, halving the external electricity demand of the building. Most of the time the solar generation feeds power to the surrounding neighbourhood.
