In April 2012 Demand Energy Equality built the world's first DIY solar PV tree with community participation. The project had a number of aims:
The tree was finished in September 2012 after a summer of hard work, three weeks of intense preparation, sculpture building, workshop running and panel testing.
As a result of their involvement in this project, the Bristol Drugs Project have partnered with us to build a second Solar Tree, coinciding with Bristol's European Green Capital Year 2015, as part of a 2.5 year programme of practical energy workshops with their users. Find out more here.
