How we can help
If you have found this site because you are looking for help and advice on how to lower your carbon emissions and tackle the issue of climate change, there are several ways in which we can help:
You can find out just how big, or small, your Carbon Footprint is by taking advantage of this service from LCON. Compare your footprint to the national average, see which activities contribute most to your total and discover where there are opportunities to make savings. Please use our contact form to indicate your interest.
We are currently running a Carbon Conversations group to help support local residents in lowering their carbon footprint. If you would like to join a group of people who are also looking for advice and practical support, please contact us to register your interest in future courses.
During the winter we borrow a thermal camera and use it to survey some local houses to see where they were losing heat, and to offer advice on what measures might be cost-effective. If you would like a free survey of your house next winter, together with information on draught-proofing and insulation, please contact us.
If you are looking into installing a particular energy-saving technology or idea, or want to know where to get unbiased advice, we may be able to help. We have created Oxon:EEK– a site for finding advice on energy efficiency, including ideas from other local residents. You can also use our installer selector or send us an email explaining what you’d like help with. We have access to local people who have tried many ideas themselves or have studied them in some detail.
