Transition Stroud energy group visit to a local solar installation

Transition Stroud energy group visit to a local solar installation

Home owners and renters wanted!

Do you have a solar panel installed? Are you heating your home with a woodstove? Have you put  up insulation at your home? Do you heat your water with a solar heater? What other measures have you taken to reduce your bills and your carbon footprint? From the smaller to the more daring improvements. Does your house demonstrate any of the ones mentioned below:

  • environmental renovation
  • renewable energy
  • reduced energy bills
  • water savings
  • waste water recycling
  • rainwater harvesting
  • green roofs
  • natural and recycled materials

Get in contact to share your experience about you’re first steps towards a more eco-friendly house.

We aim follow the good example of  http://www.ecoopenhouses.org/ to:

Water conservation

Water conservation

empower and inspire members of the public to make environmental changes to their own homes through seeing what practical steps other people have taken in their homes. It is about people learning from the
experience of others and making positive changes to reduce their environmental footprint

We plan to have a tour in Westcliff and beyond – Southend Borough wide if we have enough interest. The date would be established with the home owners – spring, summer?

Some home owners could tell their stories and show their improvements on a guided tour and others could help us by joining in an evening social or
discussion about home improvements.

You make the rules and we want you to feel safe and comfortable working with us, get in contact and share your ideas for that day.

You can support others in making important choices to their homes just by sharing your experience.

Similar tours have taken place around UK and were very successful so it is time for our locality to have one too:)
