Tiny English Village Blocks Giant Fracking Operation, Announces Plans to Build Community-Owned Solar Power Plants

Comments Off on Tiny English Village Blocks Giant Fracking Operation, Announces Plans to Build Community-Owned Solar Power Plants

Normally, the village of Balcombe, West Sussex is just another picturesque spot in a valley where nothing really happens. But when Cuadrilla Resources–the UK’s fracking pioneer–announced plans to do some exploratory drilling just five miles from the town, the citizens sprang into action. For two months they protested in an anti-fracking camp set up on the outskirts of town. Finally, the company announced it was abandoning the drill site . Not because of the protests, of course, but because rocks at the site already contain natural fractures, making it unsuitable for profitable extraction. But the activism of this tiny down didn’t disappear with the drilling rigs. Now the citizens have formed REPOWERBalcombe , a community coalition that seeks to finance and build community-owned solar power plants, and someday, take Balcombe off the grid entirely.
