Pant Memorial Hall renovation

Pant Memorial Institution

In October 2023, the Pant Memorial Hall, with a little help from the Powering Communities Fund, completed its journey to becoming a fully sustainably powered building, by finishing the installation of 28 solar panels across it's roof.

The Pant Memorial Hall

Project overview


Pant, Oswestry

Energy/power type

Solar PV - Roof mounted

  "Pant Memorial Institute is run entirely by volunteers as a registered charity. Grant funding for such improvements means that we can keep hall hire fees as low as possible, providing an affordable, accessible and comfortable venue for our semi-rural village. We are poorly served by public transport and have a large number of elderly residents, so the hall is a vital facility.” Helen Gerald, Pant Memorial Institute Committee Secretary

About the project

Since the additional panels were installed on the entrance lobby roof, the building now generates enough solar energy to be powered throughout the day, night and support the Tesla power wall bank next to the building

The Hall is run entirely by volunteers, and by partnering with Younity and being awarded the Powering Communities Fund, it’s enabled improvements that mean it can continue to be the heartbeat of this rural community.
