PROJECT SUMMARY

To reduce the overall running costs of the village hall and improve its long term / future sustainability.

BACKGROUND

Ballywalter Community and Youth Collective wanted to take a step further towards future proofing the Ballywalter Village Hall by installing electricity generating technology in the form of PV cells. The aim of the project was to reduce the overall running costs of the village hall and improve its long term / future sustainability by putting a 10kW Photovoltaic System on the roof of Ballywalter Village Hall.

ACTIVITIES

Funding from DRAP allowed the applicant to purchase and install a 10kW photovoltaic tem, which will capture the sun’s energy and turn it into clean, usable electricity, lowering consumption of grid electricity and reducing bills.
