Levenshulme takes on energy efficiency retrofit and community energy!
This January Carbon Co-op will be meeting in Levenshulme where the support for community energy and retrofit is growing. We will be joined by Ed Cox (IPPR North) who will host a discussion of the potential for community energy in Levenshulme.
We will also hear from two Levenshulme based members Lorenza and Sarah who have taken a phased approach to whole-house retrofit. Rather than making home improvements in one go, Lorenza & Paul and Sarah & Nicky are taking their retrofits step by step whilst maintaining a whole house approach. Hear about the considerations they made as they planned their retrofits, their decision making of which measures they chose to work on and why, how they managed budgeting, and how they are ensuring a whole house approach.
See a video of Lorenza & Paul’s retrofit.
If you want to make energy efficient home improvements and are a new homeowner, can’t afford the time or money to undertake significant works in one go, this social may be particularly relevant to you.
Families welcome, refreshments will be provided.
