Louth homes to get energy probe

AN in depth report is to be carried out into the energy efficiency of Louth’s housing stock.

The Transition Town Louth group has been awarded just over £31,000 from the Local Energy Assessment Fund to commission the report.

The Bristol based Centre for Sustainable Energy will produce an analysis of the number and types of residential property in the town. This information will help residents to identify the most appropriate forms of energy saving technology for their property. The project has to be concluded by March 31.

James Pocklington of Transition Town Louth said: “Our long term aim is to assist Louth’s gradual transition to a low carbon community, this is the first step. The more live data we can put into the report the better so I would ask any residents who live within the seven electoral wards of Louth to get in touch by email louthenergy@fastmail.fm and request their survey form it only takes a few minutes to complete and there’s a free entry into a cash prize draw of £100!”
