Church goes green with solar

A GRADE one listed church in Somerset has recently (November, 2013) installed solar panels onto its roof to help reduce its carbon footprint.

We installed 54 solar panels on the nave and south isle roofs of North Curry Parish Church in North Curry.

Teresa Jones, Secretary of the Parochial Church Council, said: "We would like to thank the team at Solar Systems for its hard work during the project, we are all really happy with the installation.

"We decided to install solar panels as we wanted to promote the benefits of renewable energy to our congregation and the wider community and we hope it will show other churches in the area what can be achieved.

"The solar panels will also provide additional income, which will be put back into the church and be used to help maintain the upkeep of the building.

"We used Solar Systems because it has done lots of installations in the local area. The company also has experience of working with churches and other old buildings, so has a good understanding of how to overcome some of the challenges involved."

We have a wealth of experience in the design and installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) and thermal panels for homeowners, land owners and businesses across the South West.

Phil Grabham, our Managing Director, explained: "Installing panels on any church or old building is always more of a challenge than our standard projects.

"For this installation it was important that the aesthetics of the church were maintained so we had to make sure that the panels weren't going to be visible from the ground. We also had to take care not to cause any damage to the stonework either, which dates back to medieval times.

"We are really pleased that the church is happy with the work we have done and hope this will encourage others in the area to follow suit."
