Last summer, a group of six Hexagon residents received training on how to provide energy saving advice to our residents. This was the first step in them becoming Energy Champions. The training was carried out by Groundwork, a leading organisation in energy advice and energy efficiency.
Fully armed with lots of information, our Energy Champions attended Hexagon’s Southwark Neighbourhood event in September and provided some really useful tips to a number of residents. An energy saving workshop was held at Mountacre Close in Sydenham, SE26 where residents received one-to-one advice and guidance on how saving energy saves them money.
We will be holding more energy saving events this year, but to help you save money in the meantime there are a couple of organisations that can give you some help.
