Phase 1 of “Liquid Sun” project is complete

Posted on: 04/05/2022

Poole Sea Cadet’s Project Liquid Sun to substantially reduce the carbon footprint of its TS Drax headquarters building in Sterte has been completed successfully.

Having attracted a grant from Low Carbon Dorset, the solar panels have been installed and are now providing the promised clean energy. Phase 2, battery storage, will follow soon.

Parts of the HQ building, TS Drax, are 83 years old and used to create a considerable ongoing electricity bill. The charity is constantly looking for ways to use money raised by fundraising and donations for the direct benefit of our young people rather than on increasing utility costs.

Following a technical survey and a briefing from Wessex ECOEnergy, Project Liquid Sun is swiftly gaining momentum.

Poole Sea Cadets are blazing a trail and setting an example which can form the basis for similar projects across the Sea Cadet Corps nationally.
