Mayo County Council has won an award for their efforts in energy efficiency.
They received the SEAI Energy Efficiencies Measures plaque from the Project Coordinators Clár ICH.
This project was funded by SEAI’s Community Scheme and represents a unique partnership between Bord Na Móna, the nominated Participating Energy Supplier (PES), Mayo County Council as beneficiary, Clár ICH as project coordinators and SEAI as funders.
Clár ICH coordinated works completed in 2020 including the installation of 4kW PV array and insulation of office at Derrinumera Civic Amenity Centre, retrofitting of lighting at Ballina Civic Offices and installation of an EV charge point on Castlebar Municipal District Yard to power the electric fleet. These works reduced Mayo County Council’s emissions by an estimated 34,000kgCO2/yr.
Further energy efficiency works were undertaken by Mayo County Council in 2021. Such as installation of a 30kW PV array at Rathroen Civic Amenity Centre and installation of a pilot energy monitoring system. These works are part of Mayo County Councils commitment to reducing our energy use and CO2 emissions by 51% by 2030 as set out in the 2021 Climate Action Plan.
