A charity for the disabled has been given a green energy boost.

Aeolus Capital Management and solar energy firm BE Solar joined forces to carry out the work at WindReach, an outdoor centre for the disabled in Warwick

Tina Nash, the executive director of WindReach, said: “We are so delighted and thankful to have been selected as beneficiaries of this incredible partnership between Aeolus and BE Solar.

“By providing WindReach with a solar option to help diversify our power needs, we are better able to meet our goals to become successful stewards of our environment – not just for now, but for generations to come.”

The 12.9 kilowatt system is expected to save the charity $10,000 a year and more than 678 barrels of oil from being burnt at Belco over five years.

The system, which has 38 panels, was funded by BE Solar and Aeolus and designed so it could be easily expanded.

It is the second project this year carried out by the two companies.

They also funded a solar panel system installation at Family Centre in May.

Stratton Hatfield, the director of development at BE Solar, said that the company had completed similar projects for charities such as cancer care charity Pals and the Bermuda Scout Association.

He added: “Our experienced team is so proud of this partnership with Aeolus as it is another outstanding example of three like-minded organisations coming together to help each other achieve their missions to ultimately help Bermuda and her people.”

Daina Casling, the head of Aeolus’ charitable giving committee, said: “We are delighted to partner with BE Solar again to bring renewable energy to a local non-profit organisation.

“WindReach is an important and impactful local charity that we are proud to be able to support.”
