Carbon Zero Homes Project
A project of community benefit
Retrofit is simply the process of making changes to existing buildings so that energy consumption and emissions are reduced and your home is warmer, healthier and more comfortable
What exactly is this all about?
The broad aim is to support you with any aspect of saving energy to run a home, in line with your priorities. The specific aim and focus is as described.above. To use the jargon, this is referred to as ‘retrofitting’. We will raise awareness, inform and educate about retrofit as a comprehensive approach to improving the energy efficiency of a property. We will encourage retrofit activity and we will support households onto and through the retrofit pathway.
How did this project begin?
Stoke Climsland Parish Council successfully secured a grant to set up this project and this is part of the parish response to the Carbon Neutral Cornwall Call to Action, in respect of “improving the energy efficiency of homes across Cornwall”.
How do I get in touch?
Please get in touch if this is of interest to you and you would like more information or advice, have experience of improving your own home that you would like to share with others or are interest-ed in getting involved with the project in some way. If you work in an allied trade or provide professional services in this area we would like to hear from you too.
We will be working in partnership with Cornwall Council and other organisations to deliver this project across the parish.
