The Energy Saving Project of 2011
It was decided that the Village Hall would only provide a viable Community venue if the costs of running it were reduced dramatically. Therefore a sub-committee was formed to try and secure funding and also raise money by putting forward various fund raising events. As ever the community responded and were very generous. Goodrich Village Hall is now an “Eco Hall” even though the building was built in 1888!
There is now a 4.32kwp ‘Photvoltaic’ Solar Array, capable of producing 3,456 kwh of electricity per year, and a 3 panel evacuated tube ‘Solar Thermal’ array capable of producing 2,500 kwh of energy per year.
