FIND out how to keep your home warm without breaking the bank.
Environmental group Holmfirth Transition Town (HoTT) are inviting people to an event on green energy.
In the style of the BBC’s political discussion show Question Time, a panel made up of expert environmentalists will answer questions from the audience.
Find out how you can make your home or business warmer by insulating your roof, ceilings, floors, walls and windows as well as installing ventilation and green heating.
Also find out more about Kirklees Council’s Warm Zone scheme.
The event is at Holmfirth Methodist Church on January, 17 from 7.30pm.
Organiser Janet Williams said: “The Government’s Carbon Plan published in December says that our homes account for 25% of the UK’s carbon emissions, and 40% of all the energy used in this country.
“Most of this goes on domestic space and water heating. We may complain about the size of our bills, but this is one area where it is possible to make changes that help to reduce them.”
The new Green Deal, recently announced by the government and due to come into effect in autumn, 2012, will enable homes and businesses to install energy-saving improvements at no initial expense, with the cost being met over time through the savings achieved in subsequent bills.
HoTT was established last year and the group runs regular events to raise awareness of climate change and how communities can work together to save money on fuel bills and reduce their carbon footprint.
