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.

We need to cut the average amount of energy our homes use by 80% to deal with climate change and rising fuel bills.Carbon Coop have been having a look at the options and want to know what you think would work, what wouldn’t and why.

Do you dream of a small scale hydro project or wind turbine where you live, but don’t know where to start? Is your community building crying out for a biomass boiler or a set of solar panels? Have you heard about feed in tariffs, heat incentives and paybacks and wondered whether your voluntary organisation could benefit?
