Treverbyn Community Hall launch campaign on energyfund Cornwall to gather support for Solar Panel installationBring the sunshine to Treverbyn


Treverbyn Community Hall, a Stenalees based charity, has launched an energyfund Cornwall campaign to ask the community to support their bid for a £8,000 grant to installa 4kW photovoltaic system and a small solar thermal system on the hall roof.


Sara Marsh, a Trustee for the hall explained “This project is really important, by installing these panels we can help reduce environmental footprint of the hall and at the same time it enable the running costs of this vital facility to be kept to a minimum; this is critical in enabling activities at the hall to be kept affordable for all.  We plan to have a 4kW system on the rear part of the hall roof, which will create electricity to power the new airsource heat pump.  The solar thermal system will help provide hot water to the kitchen and toilets and will help reduce our electric bill .  We also plan to have some on-site information that will  help people understand how this technology works and explore the links between energy use and climate change and we hope that this might encourage people to think about their home usage too.


Sara went on to say ” The total cost for this project is just £13,000. We have already raised £4,500 and only need £8,500 more to turn this into a reality.  We need people to get behind this project to ensure we receive a share of the funding.  It only takes a moment, won’t cost anything and it really could make a difference to us getting the funding.  So please do your good deed for the day and vote for us. ”
