Homes & Energy
Warmer homes and greener energy for all
We’re looking at ways of helping local residents to make their homes more energy efficient, and to really get going in scaling up the local production of clean, renewable energy.
We’ve produced a range of online resources and videos to explain the option and help you get started in making your home greener and more eco-friendly. Read on to find out more.
Let’s get started…
Home Energy Helpdesk
Would you like some friendly practical advice on how to save energy at home. If so, why not come along to the Home Energy Helpdesk.
It happens every second Saturday of the month from 2-4pm – the same time as the Repair Café.
It’s at Beeding & Bramber Village Hall in Upper Beeding, and it’s entirely free.
Find out more and book a place here.
