Our purpose is to help local communities to reduce energy costs and become more sustainable by reducing their carbon footprint. More specifically we aim to raise funds from the community to enable us to install locally-owned renewable energy systems and use the surplus income from these systems to fund work that reduces people’s energy consumption – for example, by improving home energy efficiency.
This year's AGM will be held on Friday 27th September at Nailsea School starting at 7:15pm. Full details including the agenda can be found on the Members page HERE
