Last night I attended a Bridport Renewable Energy Group meeting at the new Core Showroom Centre art Bradpole just outside Bridport.

The meeting was extremely interesting as we were shown around the Centre by Dan a knowledgeable and likable young man in full command of his subject. I for one was amazed at the vast array of renewable equipment that is now available from Solar, Solar Thermal through to all kinds of Heat Pumps and on into bio-mass. The new equipment looks really sexy in its shiny new colours and will be quite a feature wherever it is installed.

The BREG people all showed their interest in everything and many were already running important schemes of their own. The new Biomass project at Pat’s field for example will go live very soon and give Pat and her visitors a constant supply of hot water.

Richard Toft their Chairman speaks softly and well and has a delicate hand on the tiller.

Lucy the wife of the founder needs everyone’s thanks for hosting the event and I for one will be going back to look more closely at one or two of the items and hear the infectious enthusiasm of Lucy and her staff for the New World that is Renewables.

Thanks for a great nigh, plus I got back home in my Nissan LEAF with 25 miles spare energy, wow!
