Harnessing the sun

The Trustees of Wanstrow Village Hall have had Solar Photo-Voltaic panels installed on the Village Hall roof for the microgeneration of electricity. Have you noticed where they are?

We believe this will help the efficient and cost effective running of the Hall and enable us to keep hire fees low for the community at a time when energy prices are increasing. Our meter shows that we are already generating some electricity even in the depths of winter.

Thanks are due to all the people who expressed their support for the project.

We did not get the grant funding that we applied for, but in the end decided to fund the project out of our reserves. It was really a ‘now or never’ situation, because in March 2019 the Government will end the Feed in Tariff payments. Any subsequent installations will not qualify for the payments and so there is currently huge demand for installations.

Now that we are up and running, the next thing we need is lots of winter sunshine!
