Green Energy

Solar electricity panels, also known as photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy and convert it into electricity.  In August 2015 the Town Council installed solar panels on the roof of the Public Hall to help cut our electricity costs and reduce our carbon footprint.  The total installed capacity is 30kW which generates approximately 32,305 kWh of electricity every year.

To 1st May 2022, we have generated 209,615 kWh  of electricity which equates to a CO2 saving of 48,870kg based on The Carbon Trust’s Carbon Calculator Conversion Guide https://www.carbontrust.com/resources/conversion-factors-energy-and-carbon-conversion-guide.
