We have a range of leaflets available to download here (just click on the images below) or to pick up in the Energy Shop which will help you to save energy and cut down on bills.
WREN secured a large funding award from the Government’s 'Local Energy Assessment Fund'. This allowed us to study the local housing stock by doing detailed surveys of a number of houses from each of about ten different house types. These surveys have enabled us to work out those measures that will work for our housing stock. We are also working with the ten largest local consumers of energy.
The household results are available in a form which allows people to see what they can do without spending any money, and then how much, with what payback periods, it would cost to make their homes more energy efficient.
Vote for locally owned energy
The Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network (WREN) has applied for two grants from Energyfund Cornwall to make a significant step forward for locally-owned community energy. However, to have a chance of winning them it needs to demonstrate support through on-line voting by its supporters for both projects.
The 5 Wren note made its debut at Wadebridge Museum on 30th July.
The Wren is Wadebridge’s local currency, the only one in Cornwall.Read more...
