Help us become more self-sufficient at DC 



By installing solar power



Discovery Centre (DC) has impacted the lives of many young people and we want this to continue and to help DC achieve this the trustees want to raise funds so solar panels can provide power to the DC buildings.

There is plenty of sunshine and we want to use this to reduce the running costs of the centre to assist in the long term sustainability of the project.

The electricity bill for DC is up to £250 per month, of this approximately £150 will be use to light the buildings and provide night time security lighting.


To install a solar power system to meet DC’s demand will cost £9,000. and will be done in three phases. Phase one the main building, phase two staff accommodation and security lighting and phase three other ancillary buildings.



Phase one       £3,500  

Phase two       £3,000   

Phase three    £2,500


Phase one has been completed!



Our aim now is to raise the balance of £5,500, your help in achieving this would be greatly appreciated
