The first PUNL Community Energy Fund project came to fruition at the beginning of May when pupils from Parliament Hill School planted a “feminist orchard”.
Thirty students from Years 7 to 9 helped plant 11 fruit trees in a circle, laid wildflower turf and dug a pond.
The names of the trees will be submitted by pupils and decided on by the school’s climate action group.
PUNL set up the Community Energy Fund in 2020. It uses surplus funds from the business activity of Power Up North London to encourage and support community action in reducing carbon in our atmosphere. The fund is administered by a committee formed of PUNL shareholders and members of our board of directors.
