This project is an ambitious pilot to offer the services of draught-proofing and other "easy" fixes around the home to save energy to the residents of Easton and Lawrence Hill. Our plan is to create a sliding scale for residents interested in this service. We have gained funding to be able to offer the cost of this service and materials for those most "fuel poor". We would like to create a tool library in conjunction with this project to facilitate residents' ability to undertake home improvement projects. Sharing the tools, ideas and methods for sustainable projects around the home will improve energy affordability and increase social cohesion in the community. As a method of transportation for the draught-proofing, we will be purchasing a cargo bike. This method of transportation will be more carbon-friendly, as well as promote sustainable, active transport to those benefitting from our scheme. We will also be able to use it for our other events and projects.
We have already started surveying streets using the Flir Thermal Imaging Cameras. Tuesday night was a chance for the homeowners and volunteers to discuss what is to be expected from them. We have 20 surveys that we intend to undertake, these usually cost £100's, but we are offering them for free with this pilot scheme.
