 The Lewes Pound Celebrates Lewes

Now we are celebrating the tenth anniversaries of both Transition Town Lewes (TTL) and Ovesco, our local energy company, with more unique LP1 and LP5 notes.The notes as ever will be fully backed by sterling and exchangeable upon request. more




OVESCO is looking forward to "How Can We Really Change Stuff" and celebrating 10 years of both TTL & OVESCO. It’s been an amazing decade from a time when nobody had solar PV to this year when solar PV and wind energy provided 50% of our entire electricity on one day in June. 

Sunny Solar School & Hot Solar Thermal

  OVESCO is currently looking at two new projects. The first is called Sunny Solar Schools, which kicks off with a feasibility study to looking at getting solar PV on up to 25 schools across East Sussex. The second project is Hot Solar Thermal, which is looking at the feasibility for solar thermal on leisure centres across the Lewes District. Both projects have initial funding from the Rural Community Energy Fund (RCEF) administered by the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP). OVESCO is working with Ashden’s LESSCO2 Schools and has already had Ringmer Community College, Newick C of E Primary School and Chiddingly Primary school as the first three schools sign up for feasibility studies. 

For the solar thermal OVESCO has started talking to Wave Leisure to look at firstly look at the swimming pool in Lewes. OVESCO is interested to hear from potential investors and supporters and well as schools in East Sussex with south facing roof space for 100+ solar panels.
