Saving Energy and Money: SusWoT working with CHEESE

SusWoT have linked up with a local  organisation called CHEESE. http://www.cheeseproject.co.uk/

 CHEESE will make a video showing the heat loss, using thermal imaging cameras, in your home and give advice on how to improve things.
 Mike Andrews of CHEESE came to our Christmas drinks at the Victoria and briefly explained what CHEESE did.  Mike Crabbe and Alex Dunn from SusWoT met Mike to discuss how SusWoT and CHEESE could work together to help people in Westbury on Trym save energy and hence money.
 The first stage of this collaboration will be two open meetings at the Victoria, Chock Lane on Thursday 23 February and Thursday 2 March at 8pm.  You are invited to come to either or both of these meetings.

At the meeting on 23 February Mike Andrews and a colleague will be showing off the equipment they use to show where properties lose heat and explaining how the survey process works.  There is a link to a video of this process below.

At the meeting on 2 March SusWoT will explain to SusWotters how the process survey works and discuss how SusWoT can promote the surveys and develop a plan for energy saving work to be organised.  Mike Andrews wont be at this meeting but we hope a representative of CHEESE will be there.

At both meetings you will be able to sign up for a survey.  You can also sign up to have the survey through the Cheese website .

Cheese would like to sign up 10 people to have a survey on their home.  These surveys need to take place before Easter 2017, as after that it will be too warm to do a survey effectively.  So far one person from the Christmas meeting has already booked a survey.

This video is quite old 2015 and more modern kit is being used now, but it does give an excellent idea of how the survey works.

I think this project offers us a great opportunity to help Westbury households reduce their energy consumption so saving money in a practical doable way.

If you are unable to come to the meetings you can signup for a survey here.
