Let's energise our Deal - Deal's Green Energy Fair 10th March

Deal's Green Energy Fair is happening this Saturday (10th March) at Deal Town Hall between 1-4:30pm

The event will have something for everyone. Practical ‘how-to’ sessions on home insulation, advice on grants for insulation, advice and providers on solar power for the home and business, talks on microgeneration after the recent changes to the feed-in-tariff and on community generated energy schemes.

Rosemary Rechter, Co-ordinator for Deal With It said: “The Everyone’s energy bills are rising and we know they will go on doing so. Whether you are a householder, a business or responsible for a school, church or community centre, on Saturday afternoon you could find something that will really help you to save on your energy bills, while at the same time reducing your carbon footprint and helping to mitigate the dangers of Climate Change.

You will have the opportunity to find out whether you are eligible for a grant to insulate your home and how to go about doing it. You will discover that there is far more to renewable energy than wind farms !

If you are a business, then you might welcome the chance to talk to an independent Energy consultant. If you are a community organisation then we have an energy consultant who only does pro bono work! There will be local firms and suppliers of solar energy, wind power, wood stoves and heat exchange pumps, talks and exhibition as well as a workshop on DIY insulation."
