Low Energy Neighbourhoods Water and Energy Efficiency Project

We worked in partnership with Severn Trent Water to offer home energy and water efficiency advice for local residents in Alvaston, Chaddesden and Spondon to help tackle the issue of fuel poverty. The project team gave residents on everything from having a water meter fitted, changing energy supplier and having insulation fitted. The team also provided information about the Spondon wind turbines. Overall the project helped more than 1500 people across the three wards.
