A NEW ‘solar co-operative’ is launching in Ledbury with the aim of bringing people together to reduce their carbon footprint.

Ledbury Community Solar Co-operative is planning to put up solar panels on large roofs in the town to generate green power to benefit local people and reduce energy costs.

It is issuing shares and looking for people to join by investing anything from £250 to £20,000.
