Energy Advisors from the Environment Centre, Southampton to give free talk at Frossard Theatre, Candie Gardens, on improving home energy efficiency

January 19th, 2011 by States of Guernsey Environment Department

Energy Advisers from the Environment Centre, Southampton, will be in Guernsey running educational workshops in some of the island’s primary schools throughout Monday 24th January (La Houguette, Forest, Amherst, and St Mary and St Michael) and Tuesday 25th January (Blanchelande, Melrose, Le Rondin and St Martin’s).

Rebecca Windwood and Dr Joanne Moodie will be leading interactive demonstrations to give children the opportunity to experiment with renewable energy sources such as mini solar panels and wind turbines.

Whilst they are in Guernsey the energy advisers will also be offering advice on how people can make low and no cost changes to make their homes more energy efficient and save on their fuel bills at a presentation at the Frossard Theatre, Candie Gardens.

This introductory talk is free-of-charge and would be particularly useful for anyone keen to improve the energy efficiency of their home but perhaps has little or no idea where to start.

The talk starts at 7 pm and everyone is welcome but as seating is limited please call the Environment Department on 717200, or email to reserve your place by midday at the latest on 24th January 2011.

States of Guernsey Environment Minister, Deputy Peter Sirett said “Discovering how we can save household energy and so reduce our bills makes good sense, especially as we’ve just come through an exceptionally cold spell. The Environment Department is delighted at the interest already shown in energy saving by a number of island companies taking part in our Keep Guernsey Green Awards.

These introductory talks by the Environment Centre energy advisors will help us focus on managing our household energy.

It’s important to remember that while we’re keeping our loft insulation topped up and running our heating and hot water more efficiently we’re also reducing our carbon emissions and thus our impact on climate change.”
