An innovative partnership has been sparking children’s creativity across the UK, encouraging them to “get creative” about renewable energy, solar power, and climate change. Good Energy, 10:10, and Solar Schools held an exciting competition for the kids and provided £9,000 ($13,970) in cash for prizes to go towards the award-winning schools’ purchase of solar panels.
Good Energy Fuels Children’s Creativity
Charmaine Coutinho from Good Energy stated recently, “Good Energy believes that renewables have a really important part to play in the UK’s energy future, and we know that the schools are really excited about getting their own solar panels. So we wanted entrants to produce some artwork, sculpture, poetry, prose, collage – whatever creative avenue they wanted to choose – to illustrate what these topics mean to them.”
A founding member of the Social Stock Exchange, Good Energy is a fast-growing, 100% renewable electricity generation and supply company, supporting change in the energy market, addressing climate change, and promoting energy security. Over the course of a year, Good Energy matches all of the electricity its customers use with power from renewable sources. Good Energy invests in renewable energy sources including wind, solar, and early investment in tidal lagoon power. The company reports that its “dual fuel tariff is cheaper on average than the standard tariffs sold by the [UK] ‘Big Six’ before discounts.”
