St. Andrews Church, Lincolnshire
In line with the Church of England’s ‘Shrinking the Footprint’ campaign, this Grade 1 listed church in Epworth, Lincolnshire has recently installed power generating PV panels as part of an extensive £1.25m restoration project.
The clean, green electricity generated by the PV panels will not only reduce the carbon footprint of St Andrews Epworth by over 2,500 kg per annum, but also help the Church to become more financially sustainable. Reverend Ian Walker said “We try to be as green as we can and as the PV panels will provide us with all our electricity, we’ll also be able to sell a great deal of electricity generated back to the grid which will help a great deal with our annual running costs.”
Installation Date: January 2011
Number of panels: 34 – On roof
Total kWp: 6.29kW
Estimated kWh: Estimated annual electricity generated 5,245kWh.
