In January, Queens Hall in Narbeth, posted remarkable solar generation figures form its new 30kW solar panel array, despite Storm Ciara. Of the Hall’s total consumption, 16% came from green power as shown in the graph below. Queens Hall is a busy music and arts venue which hosts concerts, comedy, films and events. It includes gallery space and a café.
Egni Director, Rosie Gillam, said, “We are delighted by the figures from Queens Hall and it just shows the effectiveness of onsite renewable generation. We expect that the figures will be far higher in the summer when the Pembrokeshire sun is beaming down! The Hall is showing how to tackle the climate emergency by working in partnership with Egni, a Welsh coop.
We are also delighted to announce the commissioning of two other systems at Valleys Kids and Clynderwen Village Hall. Valleys Kids are a remarkable organisation which have been supporting young people in some of the most deprived communities of S. Wales for over 35 years. More information on their work here https://valleyskids.org/the-projects/. They were very keen to work with us in order to demonstrate to their young people that the organisation was serious about climate change. The 17kW system was fitted by Welsh installer, Ice Power . Generation data for our solar panels at Valleys Kids can be seen here Valley Kids Soar Centre
Clynderwen Village Hall is a vital community hub which hosts meetings for senior citizens, the WI, Young Farmers and many other local groups. The 30kW system was installed by Preseli Solar who are a local company in Pembrokeshire. Generation data of the site can be seen here.
Dan McCallum, Egni Director, added “All these projects are a demonstrations of how Wales can meet its world-leading aims under the Future Generations Act by working at a grassroots level. And the organisations will be more financially, as well as environmentally sustainable
