Be Green Advice Centres
Our BeGreen Energy Advice Centres have been developed by Community Windpower Ltd to help local communities to reduce domestic carbon emissions, reduce fuel poverty and improve energy efficiency with the aim of becoming Carbon Neutral.
Our BeGreen Energy Advice Centreswill achieve these aims by providing:
- Advice on energy efficiency in order to reduce energy usage;
- Help to residents of poorly insulated homes to search for and obtain grants and funding for free or discounted cavity wall and loft insulation and other energy efficiency measures, with additional top-up funding available from BeGreen;
- Advice and information on alternative energy systems and assisting with installations, searching for grants/funding, contacting approved installers and the provision of top-up grants;
- A carbon calculator service to review fuel bills, check tariffs, record progress in cutting carbon emissions and offering advice on how to reduce bills;
- Working partnerships with othe groups to deliver the Low Carbon message and raise awareness by presenting in the local community, visiting schools and community groups, and ensuring the most up-to-date information is always available;
- Free energy efficient resources including low energy light bulbs and powerdowns, and offering services to assist with sustainability e.g. battery recycling facilities.
