Ebenezer Baptist Church, Abertillery
Ebenezer Baptist Church in Abertillery applied for a grant to help with improving the building and facilities in the church and make the church lounge a more suitable venue for small group activities. Following the installation of a 10 kw solar panel system on the roof, they also wished to install a Solax 10Kwh hybrid inverter to store all the energy generated. The grant from James Pantyfedwen Foundation together with the grant from Coalfields Regeneration Trust enabled that work to be completed, and although there are still some months to go before the church sees a full year’s results, the early indications are positive with savings of around £20 per month. For this work, Ebenezer was Highly Commended in the Small Project Category in the Welsh Energy Efficiency Awards 2019, and we congratulate them on this commendation.
