Pager Power is a member of RenewableUK (formerly British Wind Energy Association - BWEA), the trade and professional body for the wind and marine renewable energy industries in the UK. RenewableUK acts as a lobbying group to further promote wind energy and other renewable technologies.
RenewableUK has also set up the Aviation Strategy Group to further assist wind farm developers to move current wind farm radar and wind farm aviation issues forward.
Pager Power is an active member of this group and was part of the group when the memorandum of understanding (MOU)was signed by RenewableUK, the Ministry of Defence (MOD), NATS, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR), and the Department for Transport (DfT).
Pager Power thinks that business is a two way process, so is pleased to announce the company’s first charity scheme.
From October 2012 Pager Power will be forming a charitable partnership with the River Stour Trust, a local charity (Registered Charity No. 257806), led by volunteers dedicated to the restoration and conservation of the River Stour Navigation for the benefit and enjoyment of the public.
The Trust actively encourages use of the river and particularly promotes the use of small and electrically powered craft that are silent in operation and environmentally friendly. The Trust seeks to reinstate through navigation, improve river access points and campaign for a change to the byelaws in order to permit electric boats on the whole stretch of the River Stour. The Trust raises funds and awareness through many river-based activities and events on or near the river, operates river trips for the public and holds regular working parties to maintain the locks and structure in our care.

The River Stour sweeps through Suffolk and Essex in the East of England and passes right by Pager Power Offices which is just minutes from the Trust’s Education Centre. Pager Power will be working closely with the trust to help in their charitable activities in the following ways:
- For every person signing up to Pager Power’s online system we will donate £1 to the trust;
- A further £2 if customers provide us with feedback on our services;
- Employees of Pager Power are also looking to help the trust in their free time.
