Feeling Powerless?

Join a group: alone there is little we can do about a global crisis; but together?  All the progress that has been made has happened through people working together to support each other, to grow their voices and the voices of others.

In your home: Electrify everything

Decarbonising housing is a massive challenge but it doesn't have to be, just replace with electric as you need to:

  • When you need a new boiler: get air source heating instead of a new boiler: the pricing is now comparable!

  • Cooker, Car, Solar power; prices continue to fall so start saving now and when the time comes you may even have money left over for a nice low carbon holiday
