Congratulations to everyone for the Open Day at Balsall Heath Church Centre on Saturday (9th April). We had a really full tour and explanation from eco architect and congregation member John Christophers. People saw a slideshow of the building process; also a mock up of the monitor dashboard that will display how the solar roof is performing. Thanks to Gaynor Mokrysz of Alumasc for donating the smart new laptop on which it appeared.
Now every building in the neighbourhood is getting a little of the church’s solar eletricity, as it feeds into the grid.
Those who came were surely inspired by seeing solar energy being generated to consider this for homes, churches and business in the area.
The roof is featured on the Church of England ‘Shrinking the Footprint’ website
