Interactive Display To Show Communities How To Go Green And Save Money


South Cambridgeshire communities can now borrow a new fun and interactive display showing people how they can go green to save energy and money on their bills.

Perfect for village events, the new Sustainable Parish Energy Partnership display helps demonstrate to people of all ages the different ways they can make their home cheaper to run and more comfortable to live in.

The display - developed by South Cambridgeshire District Council using prize money from a regional award from National Energy Action and the Department for Energy and Climate Change - suggests a range of green changes that can be made in a day, a week, a month and a year.

South Cambridgeshire District Council leader, Cllr Ray Manning, said: “Our Sustainable Parish Energy Partnership is a real success, with 27 parishes helping to raise awareness of
greener living. I hope that this new display will be well used, giving people some great ideas on how to save energy and their hard-earned money.”

The display requires an indoor space of 3.5metres squared and comes in packing cases with full construction information.

To find out more about borrowing the display, contact the Council’s parish energy project officer, Siobhan Mellon, on siobhan.mellon@scambs.gov.uk or 03450 450 500.
