The feasibility study for the energy labelling of North Leigh project has now been completed. Members of the Village, North Leigh Parish council and industry experts looked into various ways of labelling the Village and an appropriate method of labelling the village has been established.
The steering group along with the Thames Valley Energy Centre have now approached West Oxfordshire District Council for funding to take the project forward to phase two.
Phase two of the project will involve monitoring the village’s energy use over the next 2 years with the aim of producing an energy label like you would find on a new domestic appliance. We will need as many villagers as possible to participate in this monitoring exercise by taking a reading of their gas and electric meters – or for those on solid fuel or oil, to make a record of their usage.
We hope that everyone in the village will support this unique project that will really put North Leigh on the map. By participating in the project householders will become more energy aware and will be given guidance on how to make low / no cost improvements to their property, saving energy and money in the process.
