Calderdale Retrofit Community Champions

Carbon Coop, in partnership with Pennine Community Power, has launched ‘Calderdale Retrofit Community Champions’ (CRCC).

CRCC is an exciting project based in Todmorden. It will focus on a community learning and sharing programme about how everyday people can retrofit their homes to make them cosier, reduce energy bills, and lower their carbon footprint. Over the next eight months, the project will bring together experts and residents in regular meetings, workshop events, and home assessments to explore what Retrofit means and how it can be used in homes in Todmorden.

Our Retrofit Community Champions willl:

  • Learn where heat loss happens and how you can improve efficiency in your home.
  • Learn more about the basics of Retrofit and how this could be applied to your home.
  • Be part of a network of 12 champions sharing learning, discussions and ideas through regular meetings facilitated by Carbon Coop. 
  • Potentially be one of the eight homes to receive a free Home Retrofit Plan, which includes a complete home assessment and tailored pathway for home energy improvements worth £550 (Champions not chosen will be able to see and learn from plans of homes similar to their own)

We’re looking for people to become champions who: 

  • Are considering retrofitting their home(this could be loft insulation, new windows, etc.)
  • Can commit to the project and host at least one meeting in their home or a community venue 
  • Would like to attend future community-based events focussed on Retrofit. 

If you’re interested in being part of the project, and if you want to learn more – please complete our expression of interest survey and register your attendance at our drop-in event on Thursday, 8 Dec, 5:30 – 6:30 pm at Todmorden Community College.
