Church gets heating bills paid for 20 years!
Parishioners at a church in the North East of England can expect to be warm for the next twenty years without paying a penny.
St. Alban’s Church in the village of Earsdon near Whitley Bay has secured a government subsidy which rewards organisations that invest in green technologies. Last year St. Alban’s installed a state- of- the- art biomass boiler which runs on wood pellets and heats the church and adjacent community hall. The church spent more than £150,000 on the new system which replaced an old gas boiler.
