Warcop Renewable Energy Group

WREG have submitted an application to the Energy Savings Trust for grant funding to begin the process of investigating how we can achieve some of the ideas for Warcop. We hope to hear very shortly whether we have been awarded the grant funding.

The plans are to restore the electricity generating capabilities of the village, reduce the carbon footprint of the whole village, and save money for residents and businesses. Additional to this are plans to "join a few dots" - more news on that soon!

Reducing the carbon footprint:

Ashton Hayes in Cheshire (1000 residents) has just announced that it is the first village to go carbon neutral. There are fantastic carbon reduction and carbon neutral resources on the website which we should all begin looking at.

The video can be watched below
