Helping residents of Colchester and Tendering to move toward Net Zero

Community Energy Colchester have been successful in applying to the Climate Action Fund from Essex County Council.

Many thanks to @essex_cc for their support during the process. We will be using the £20,000 funding to install interim measures in households in Arlesford and Colchester.

From November 2022 we will be looking to install interim energy saving measures in at least 60 homes, these measures include the supply and fitting of: draft excluders around doors and windows, radiator reflectors, lining curtains and thin film secondary glazing. We’ll also help residents to understand their energy bills and how to reduce energy use and save money…

We will ask for a small donation (£20) toward the cost of the material and installation; in return you will receive an energy survey, an assessment of interim energy saving needs and installation on the same day.

This project is expected to take 2 years to complete

We have completed roof top surveys
