Take your MP on a solar treasure hunt

Next week, people up and down the country will be inviting their MPs on nature walks, tea parties and community energy visits, all celebrating action on climate change.

And we thought, why not invite your MP on a solar treasure hunt? Rediscover your local high street and explore how much untapped clean energy we walk past every day.

It’s super-easy. Download our new app, Look Up. Point it at a likely roof - a shop, a school, a mosque, a cinema, whatever - and after a few super-easy steps, you’ll get a rough readout of how much solar power the building could host.

There's real potential for change in towns, cities and villages around the country, so get logging roofs around you, and let your local MP know what you’re up to.

The more solar potential you discover, the higher you’ll climb up the leaderboard. If you’re in the top spot by October 30th (when the clocks go back), you’ll win a DIY solar panel making workshop and wind-powered Rapanui clothing vouchers.

And as an extra incentive, if you download before Monday morning and you could win a year’s supply of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream (we’ll leave it to you to decide if you want to share that with your MP or not...).
