Air Source heating expert to talk to Goldsithney residents

A group of energy conscious residents from Goldsithney will be finding out about the opportunities to heat their homes with energy absorbed from the air at a meeting on Wednesday 4th May.

Renewable energy specialist Martin Hook will be sharing his expertise on Air Source Heat Pump technology at a presentation for village’s recently formed Energy Group.

Goldsithney’s Energy Group has been formed as part of the West Cornwall Local Action Group’s Sustainable Energy Community project to increase the take up of renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency measures in the area.

Community Energy Plus’s Rob Pickering, who is leading project, explained: “Many rural villages in West Cornwall are not connected to the mains gas network which means that householders often rely on more expensive forms of heating like oil and bottled propane gas.  Renewable energy technologies have made massive advances in recent years and can offer residents living in rural areas an affordable and sustainable alternative to heat and power their homes.  This project will help local communities get the information and support they need to explore and adopt the renewable options available.”

The meeting on Wednesday 4th May at St Pirans Hall, South Street, Goldsithney will start at 7.30pm and is open to all local residents.

The Sustainable Energy Communities project in West Cornwall is funded by the West Cornwall Local Action Group which is part financed by the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) using funding  from the EU and Defra.
