Transition Ashtead is about to start a home energy group. The first meeting of the group will be on Thursday 14 January. Before we have met we cannot really say what we intend to do, but informally we have mentioned the following possible activities.
- Share success and failures. We could encourage people to put their own energy projects on our website and maybe have open days in their homes. (We have already had an offer to view a local ground source heat pump installation.)
- Bulk buy insulation materials
- Advise on good local suppliers and contractors
- Help people to use the grants available
- Encourage people to measure their personal carbon footprint
If you’d like to get involved in the group or want to know more, we’d love to hear from you. You can either email us using the ‘Contact Us’ link on the Transition Ashtead home page or give me a ring on 01372-378914.
