Energy Efficiency Project in Harbertonford -Community Action for Retrofit Delivery – C.A.R.D
CARD is a project that the South West Devon Community Energy Partnership (SWD CEP), of which TTT is a member, has agreed with the Energy Savings Trust (they are providing some support and funding). The overall aims are:-
- Identify the part that community groups can play to drive uptake of retrofit measures and energy saving changes within domestic properties in their locality. Highlight any barriers in effective take-up of home improvements relating to efficiency measures and understand how they can be overcome through community engagement and joint working.
- Establish a core pool of retrofitted properties across a number of communities providing valuable case studies and encouraging further take up through peer to peer knowledge exchange.
In practice 5 communities, of around 250 homes each, across the partnership area will be targeted. TTT has proposed working in Harbertonford village.
TTT is looking for volunteers to get involved in a team to deliver the project- tasks could include writing materials, delivering leaflets, door knocking, attending events to publicise project, delivering workshops, recruiting community champions, energy audits etc. Contact Mary Popham on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07815 799996 if you are interested in getting involved or simply want to find out more.
