Teign Energy Communities

Description

We want people in the local area to become more aware of, and engaged with their use of energy, so that energy becomes as familiar as money.

How have we done this?

We have set up a Community Benefit Society (CBS). This allows us to identify , deliver, own and run Renewable Energy installations. The Society is already generating an income from projects to benefit the community around energy use.

So what does our vision really mean?

We don’t just want to help organisations put renewable energy installations on sites they own or occupy. We also want to work with these organisations and the wider community to become more aware of our energy use.

By engaging with energy use , we are all more likely to understand and appreciate it. This can also lead to a change in our attitudes and behaviour when using energy, not just at work or school, but also when we go home.
