Louth renewable energy project

The Renewable Energy Around Louth project, a joint initiative of Groundwork Lincolnshire and Transition Town Louth, has won funding through the DECC initiated Renewable Heat Premium Payment Communities scheme.

They aim to stimulate the local market for renewable heating technologies in homes.

Is your house off the gas network? Do you find energy bills a problem? Have you been considering solar hot water, heat pumps or wood fuelled heating?

Please do get in touch before November 2 to register your interest.

If they are successful in getting sufficient suitable householders interested in the scheme by early November the funders will provide a significant cash incentive (£1000 to £2500) to householders.

Work will be done in early 2013. Respected local installers will quote for and carry out the work.

Transition Town Louth’s James Pocklington said: “The funders particularly want to reach households for whom the voucher will make a real difference. Volunteers will be delivering leaflets to selected homes in the coming week. I’m also delighted to support local businesses.”

Groundwork’s Vicky Dunn said: “We really want to see these future-proofed heating systems take off in this area. No one expects the price of heating fuel to fall, but sunlight for solar hot water is free. The enhanced grant we have won is a great opportunity for householders.”

If you would like more information then go along to one of the information events - Saturday October 20 10-12am or Thursday October 25 6-7.30pm, Both events are at Navigation Warehouse, Riverhead Road.
