Public buildings and community centers are a prime application for solar energy systems. Used frequently during the day time with relatively high energy consumption, these installations offer an excellent return on investment, help reduce energy bills and promote a positive and responsible attitude towards energy consumption.
With electricity being the only connected utility at Lavant Memorial Hall, its committee wanted to reduce its bills and offset the cost of running the facility by investing in Solar PV. Solar Voltaics installed 9 kW all black monocrystalline panels connected to the Hall’s three-phase supply. Included as part of the project was the energy performance certification (EPC) process; which was challenging due to the age and construction of the building. A Level D EPC was achieved to enable the full feed-in-tariff to be claimed.
Lavant Memorial Hall have a second stage plan to use surplus energy generated to heat their hot water for kitchen and showers using our SolarSaver.
