PUNL’s Community Energy Fund helps install LEDs at 74 properties
PUNL provided £2800 from its Community Energy Fund for the Light Fantastic project which swapped LED lights for fluorescents in Walker House, Somerstown.
Seventy-four flats received the new lights, which will save 2.7t of carbon/year, or 13.5t over five years – the expected lifespan of the lights.
PUNL worked with Think&Do Camden with additional funding from Troup Bywaters + Anders (TBA). Two residents helped lead the pre-engagement work, sometimes needing more than one visit.
One hundred and thirty-seven households were approached, resulting in a take-up of 74 flats putting LEDs into kitchens and bathrooms with a collective annual estimated cost saving of £3200.
Some residents signed up to the Energy Savings Club run by Think & Do at Phoenix Court (and on WhatsApp) where they receive ongoing advice about energy efficiency.
