We are delighted to be running a series of MYHE courses in the new year in partnership with Eaton Energy Group, and funded by the Lottery Awards for All.

They are designed to help you to take control of energy at home, and will be run by Martin Fodor, focusing on:

  •         Free and low cost ways to save money and energy
  •         General advice, from basic through to advanced
  •         Specific focus on owner-occupied and tenancy solutions
  •         Understanding appliances and bills
  •         The most cost-effective solutions for you
  •         Draught proofing and other options

There will be six 90 minute sessions per course, starting January 21st 2014 at Easton Community Centre. The dates are:

    Tuesdays 7 - 8.30pm
    Thursdays 1.30 - 3pm (starting 30th Jan)

The course will cost £30 (£10 concessions), but you should save much more than this on your energy bills with the knowledge you gain. This is an exceptionally good rate for a six part course, and the aim is a friendly, supportive group that involved everyone at their own pace! If you would like to sign up fill in this form. While places are prioritised at local residents these are open to all, although numbers are of course limited per course. Advance registration is needed to enable preparations and to send you advance information.

We are planning a shorter course to be delivered in Somali in March/April, we'll publish more details nearer the time.

Some testimonials (more here): http://makeyourhomeeco.wordpress.com/the-courses/testimonials/

“It’s helped me understand the relationship between energy saving, carbon footprint reduction and the effectiveness (both in these terms and in financial terms) of undertaking different projects so that I can understand what potential payback may be and I can therefore prioritise which are most relevant / achievable for me.”

“It has helped me to focus and given me the information and confidence to get on with some projects, particularly the low cost ones that I can do myself.”
