12Feb2011: Energy savers at home, Tavistock

Energy savers at home

Have you reduced your bills by conserving energy or generating it from a renewable source? Yes? Then your
community needs you!

Transition Tavistock & the Tamar Valley AONB(1) wish to run an event where the public can visit homeowners to
see what they have done, talk to an impartial owner about the costs and benefits, and consider how measures
might work in their own homes. The dates are likely to be Sunday 12th February 2012 for Tavistock and villages,
with a follow-up covering the greater Tamar Valley on Saturday 10th March 2012.

Open home events are attended by thousands of people every year in areas like Bristol, Crediton and Stroud.
Experience has shown that they lead to action. As many as 83% of visitors are responding, taking practical steps
to improve energy efficiency in their own homes. The events are also a stimulus for the local ‘green economy’ of
traders and installers.

If you have done anything on the list below, we would love to hear from you. We’re interested in homes new and
old, small, medium or large. Please give either Kate or Simon a call or email.

With very best wishes
