Does your building cost a lot to keep it warm? Are you struggling to make it a welcoming, comfortable place for everyone in your community to use? Read about Action Hampshire’s new energy audits project!
We are looking for six community halls to have an energy audit, carry out improvements identified by the audit, and then to share the results with other organisations in our area. You will get a professional energy audit, which normally costs around £500, for just £50. The audit will identify many things you can do to make your building more energy efficient, so reducing your energy use and saving you money. Even better – plenty of these actions will have little or no cost.
Take a look at our website for all the details, including the application form and guidance notes – click here. Our project partners, Winchester Action on Climate Change, are offering a free talk on fuel poverty to all applications that apply for a low cost energy audit. Information about this offer is in the guidance notes at the bottom of this page.
Do you qualify? Our grant funding from Hampshire County Council means this project is only open to community buildings in Hampshire villages or towns with less than 10,000 residents. The funding is also only available to buildings managed by a not-for-profit sector organisation, like a village hall committee or community association.
We need your application back by midday on Tuesday 7 February, or Tuesday 24 January if you are ready. Don’t rush, though – we will save some funds for the later deadline.
