Ladock and Grampound Road residents enjoy Low Carbon community tours

Residents of Ladock and Grampound Road took the opportunity to see renewables in action across their community when the parish’s ‘Low Carbon Living’ project held its first open day tours recently.

The event was organised by Community Energy Plus who secured funding for the initiative through the Low Carbon Communities Challenge and have managed the delivery of the project.

Guided tours of a selection of participating properties provided a chance for parish residents to see a number of renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency solutions in action across a range of building types and also included a visit to the community owned wind turbine.

Neil Farrington, Sustainable Energy Projects Manager at Community Energy Plus was pleased with the interest shown for the project within the wider community: “The open day proved to be a great opportunity for local residents to get up close to renewable technologies and find out about the experiences directly from householders who have been living with the technology.  This project is all about delivering low carbon activity across the community and events like this are a great way of inspiring more people to get involved in futures stages of the project and take action to lead more sustainable lives.”
