Update – The Project was opened by Conservative MP Keith Simpson the some photographs are available here.
The village hall has had some recent ecological energy systems installed. Peter Herring has kindly provided me with some technical information with regards to what the hall has installed. Over time hopefully the system information will be embellished. This could provide visitors with a more concise view of the technologies involved.
1. A 15 meter mast and wind turbine.
2 .A Ground source heat pump system with the pipework being under just beside the main playing field.
For more information please see the other pages by hovering your mouse over the eco tab.
We plan to keep you updated regarding the Wind Turbine an its contribution to the Village Hall’s running costs by publishing a chart showing the kWhs generated each month.
Click on this Wind Turbine. You will probably have noticed that between March 9th and April 9th there were a few days when the wind levels were so low that the turbine was pretty still. It is quite amazing that some days it will not generate anything and others it goes like the clappers. Bearing this in mind there is nothing to be read into a low generating month as it will fluctuate significantly.
When you have looked at the chart, close Word down and this will return you to the website.
Peter Herring has given me some photographs of the construction process for the project.
