The successful recipient of the grant for 2018 was Tedburn St Mary Village Hall
Previous recipients were:
2017 Teign School was the focus of the Fund. LED lighting panels were successfully installed in one corridor, saving more energy and money.
2018 funds were awarded to the Village Hall St Tedburn St Mary for help with increasing the use on site of solar power generated by installing a hot water iboost system, plus other measures to improve heating and hot water efficiency. Interestingly after detailed monitoring, using the TECs energy pack, the money was used for other replacement equipment. Phil Durbin from the Village Hall Committee reported back, “In the end it came down to one area where we were using significant amounts of electricity……lighting. We have over 50 fluorescents and almost a dozen other basic light units at the hall……none are LED. I think we knew that it was an area where we could save energy use, but we were shocked by the significance of how much we could save. Fuad and I went through all the calculations and decided there were indeed significant savings to be made”
If you have an energy project you would like some help with, our Community Fund is open to any organisation in Teignbridge. Your proposed project should focus on engagement with Energy, the cornerstone of the TECs vision.
Remember the TECs objectives are :
- Generating income to re-invest in further community energy initiatives in Teignbridge or to provide grants for local community benefit.
- Supporting educational and other community activities which promote awareness of energy use, the value of energy saving measures and environmental stewardship.
