Balcombe has brought together the two streams we need for a good future: resisting damage to the earth, and building the alternative. Instead of fracking, they will have solar energy, powering the community. When Cuadrilla’s drilling rigs moved in three years ago, noone could have predicted this. It was a solidly Conservative-voting area, and the forces of the government and big business were lined up against them. But through determination, good hearts, and people from many different backgrounds working together, they have won! And in 2016 the village has gone solar.
BUT . . . . .
