The Community Association board is delighted to have secured a grant of £5000 from the County Durham Community Foundation (EDF Renewables Fund) to fit Solar panels on to the roof of the hall.
The board has committed a similar sum of money for a 32 panel 8KW system to be fitted. The system includes a device which will increase the efficiency of the energy conversion by approx. 20%.
Despite the recent massive cut in the Feed in Tariff this will still prove both a good long term investment and reduce our carbon footprint as we switch to using renewable energy.
