Neath Port Talbot CVS leads the way in tackling climate change

Neath Port Talbot Council For Voluntary Service and Egni Coop are delighted to announce the installation of two solar systems at NPTCVS offices in Neath. The system at its Alfred St office is 6kw and there’s a 10kw system at the Orchard St office. The systems were installed by Welsh firm, Ice Power.

Gaynor Richards, Director of Neath Port Talbot CVS said, “As a third sector organisation, we fully support the drive for clean energy and are really pleased to have solar panels fitted to each of our premises, which will bring real economic benefits for us as an organisation and to the environment, helping improve our sustainability. Working with EGNI Coop and the installation team has been a positive experience and the installation has happened with the minimum of fuss and disruption to our very busy workplace”.      

Dan McCallum from Egni/Awel Aman Tawe said, “We have been proud members of CVS for over 20 years and have had a huge amount of support from the organisation over that time. It’s really good to see something tangible on their offices in Neath which will help tackle climate change and reduce their running costs. We hope that many other community sites in Neath Port Talbot will follow suit – we are expecting to install solar panels on Cymer Library, Croeserw Social Club, Cwmafan Engagement Centre and ‘Me Myself and I’ in Briton Ferry in the next 6 weeks. We have already installed on Dove Workshops in Banwen, Glynneath Training Centre, Crynant Community Centre and Seven Sisters Community Centre. These are all vital nuggets in the social infrastructure of Neath Port Talbot which CVS has helped develop over the years – and we are also happy to work with them in reducing the carbon emissions of all these groups through solar and other measures.
