On Thursday 14 February, Mechteld Blake - the phenomenal driving force behind Pendock Primary's Solar Schools project - had the pleasure of telling 43 suitably chuffed pupils, that after just 18 weeks of hard work - highs and lows - their tiny school had raised a phenomenal £9,170.
Alongside a plethora of events and community fundraising, the team invited businesses to do their bit to help the pupils of Pendock grow
up in a clean, green solar school. And it's an opportunity that Good Energy wisely didn't want to miss. After the Pendock team got in touch with them to tell them what they were up to, they decided they wanted to do what they could to see the school succeed and donated an incredible £3050, which saw Pendock sail over their target.
It's crazy when you think about it. From showering in the morning to draining the pasta for dinner, we each put gallons of hot water down the drain every day.
Mix it all up, and it's enough to keep our sewers flowing at a balmy average of 15C. That's a lot of energy babies being thrown out with our bathwater.
I've always thought there should be a way to re-use that heat, but I suspect the demand for lukewarm sewage-filled radiators is fairly modest. Luckily, there's another way.
In a year of record-breaking extreme weather, it's never been clearer that we need to step things up in a big way.
But when it's time to do more, it's also worth reminding ourselves what we're capable of.
So to celebrate another remarkable year, we've put together a big roundup of the best things we did together in the last 12 months. As always, it makes for pretty inspiring reading!
