We have recently launched a community energy scheme with support from other London Boroughs. Our aim is to set up an Ilford solar community energy project in the longer run. 🙂
Our first pilot project is to support a few Ilford community or faith groups to change over to LED lighting. LED lights are more energy efficient than traditional bulbs and installing them is a quick and simple way to save money on energy bills whilst at the same time reducing carbon in the environment.
We are looking for suitable community or faith buildings to take part in 2020. We will assess your building for suitability, raise the funds to purchase the LEDs, help you to install them and, if you wish, offer ongoing support with other energy saving measures. We can help to publicise your participation and can help to involve your users/worshippers in the project if you would like us to.
LED lights are at least 75% more efficient than conventional bulbs and more efficient and effective than conventional energy saving light bulbs. By switching all your bulbs over to LEDs you can save up to 75% on your lighting bills and greatly reduce your energy demand. (Crew Energy London)
