Carbon Co-op tour - Community Energy Fortnight

Community Energy Fortnight - Carbon Co-op tour

The Big Red Bus Tour of Green Houses is an opportunity to visit homes that have made radical reductions in energy bills and carbon emissions.

Everything from solar PV panels and biomass boilers to external wall insulation and triple glazed windows.

On the tour you'll visit three householders around Greater Manchester who retrofitted their houses as well as getting the chance to meet other people on the tour interested in making improvements to their homes.

Carbon Co-op featured in Big Issue in the North

Two members, Rob Jones and Dom McCann, were featured in a report by Big Issue in the North on the Community Green Deal retrofit pioneers programme. 

Authored by Sarah Roe and published in the week commencing 2nd January 2015, the article profiles their experiences of retrofit improvements and the difference these have made to their homes.
