Haydon Wick Parish Council has taken a significant step this month to reduce its environmental impact. Photovoltaic (PV) panels have been installed on the roof and connected to the electricity supply, enabling the Council to produce electricity for use in the Parish Council office on Thamesdown Drive.
The work has been supported by a grant from the Low Carbon Buildings scheme, and over its life of around 25 years, is expected to generate income as well as reduce the Council’s environmental impact.
The panels will produce the most electricity during the spring and summer months and at this time any surplus energy produced will be sold to Southern Electric.
Details about the performance of the system will be available during 2009 on the Parish Council Website http://www.haydonwick.gov.uk/
