Low Carbon Lymm has been awarded £47,000 of government funding from the ‘Local Energy Assessment Fund’ (LEAF). The funding will enable Low Carbon Lymm to carry out an extensive programme of community engagement, energy profiling and energy efficiency surveys in and around Lymm. The project will focus on increasing the uptake of energy efficiency measures in homes, small businesses and community buildings to identify potential for savings.
The group is looking for 250 homes in the Lymm area (postcode WA13) to receive a free home survey from a qualified assessor. A qualified assessor will visit your home and perform a survey looking at each room of the house. Each home will receive a report that is tailored to their property, with recommendations on how to cut bills and achieve savings, as well as identifying measures that could be delivered cost-effectively when the government’s Green Deal is launched in the autumn. The Energy Saving Trust currently quotes annual savings of £310 for people who install loft and cavity wall insulation. Practical advice and support will also be provided to householders.
Homeowners can register their interest by calling 0800 512 012 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a limited-time offer and on a first-come-first-served basis. If your interest in applying please fill in our application form here and email it to us.
In addition to the home assessments, 20 small businesses and 10 community buildings will be surveyed as part of the project. Through a programme of community engagement and home and business energy surveys the project aims to investigate awareness of, and attitudes towards, energy use and the barriers to taking action. The results will be presented at an event to be held in March this year.
The project provides a firm basis for developing and implementing Low Carbon Lymm’s future plans that aim to make Lymm an exemplar of sustainable, low carbon living. This project is being completed in partnership between Low Carbon Lymm, Energy Projects Plus, CB3 Design Limited, Property Inspection Limited & Warrington Borough Council.
