News that is of relevance to those in Baildon interested in the Environment
"11 by 11"; this was the aim of Baildon Friends of the Earth: they aimed to encourage 11 Baildon homes to install photovoltaic (PV) panels by 2011.
By February 2011 this had already been achieved.
Eleven Baildon homes with PV receive over 50% of their electricity free from the sun, and typically make an extra income of £900 per year by generating their own electricity from the roofs. They are saving about 11 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year for Baildon, thus reducing global warming.
Since this news item was first published, we now know that there have been 16 installations in Baildon by May 2011.
