The second Monmouthshire Eco Open Doors takes place on the weekend of April 27th and 28th 2013. Twenty seven properties will be opening, ranging from a school, a community allotment project, a church, a village hall, new eco-houses, and older houses that have been retro-fitted to make them more eco-friendly.
Green Park Power have completed the installation of 35 kW of solar PV on a farm shed in Newcastle near Monmouth. This 138 panel installation will save 21 tonnes of CO2 per year and was commissioned for Gwent Energy CIC, a not for profit community interest company that helps community groups with renewable energy solutions.
Solar panels have been identified as the best way to add extra value to your property according to a new survey by ING Direct.A solar PV installation has been listed as the most desirable ‘non-essential deal-sealer’ for potential property buyers in the UK.
A new survey published by mortgage lender ING Direct has revealed that the British public value solar panels over any other non-essential property extras. The current tough property market means that homeowners are increasingly looking at extra ways in which they can boost the attractiveness of their property and 38 percent of those surveyed listed solar panels as the most desirable property extra.
Homemakers Community Recycling in Abergavenny have opened their new solar panel installation, installed by Green Park Power, to the public. Visitors can see the panels and electrical works, and view live updates on the energy being produced from the sun on a state of the art display within their showrooms on Union Road West. The public display is the culmination of a project involving a number of South Wales groups and businesses.
Green Park Power,installed the electrical works and oversaw the commissioning of the installation. Gwent Energy, a community interest company dedicated to supporting alternative energy, provided the initial design and managed the project. Roofrite, of Abertillery, mounted the panels whilst installing a brand new roof.
Richard Lewis Chairman of Homemakers said ‘As a recycling charity we are exceptionally proud of our green credentials and this solar installation is both energy saving and educational’.
Homemakers will also be organising educational tours for school parties and other interested groups. Homemakers would like to thank Abergavenny Town Council for their financial support with the project. For further information contact Green Park Power at www.greenparkpower.co.uk
Green Park Power have completed training to take advantage of new technology that is making PV (Photovoltaics/Solar Electric) work more efficiently and can overcome many of the limitations imposed by shading and orientation – even on the smallest of roofs.
