We are a social enterprise which is based in Easton, we try to help local residents reduce energy use and assist people in fuel poverty find grants or other means to aid with their home energy costs. We are committed to taking community action against climate change and helping people reduce their energy consumption and carbon footprints. We recently worked with Bristol City Council on the Warm Up Bristol Project, we’ve been encouraging our community to consider different retrofit options for Victorian houses. In addition to that, we will be giving Energy Best Deal seminars to share information on how people can get the lowest rates or best offers available to them. We’re currently working with Clean Energy Prospector on the TWO Streets of Solar project.
