South Cambridgeshire District Council has purchased 3 infra-red cameras, which LGEG have borrowed for a week or so for the last 4 winters. This has enabled local householders to see where the heat losses are in their houses. These cameras are now available to any South Cambridgeshire householder by arrangement (and with training) from their Cambourne offices.
Cambridgeshire Energy Switch is a bulk purchase scheme for electricity supplies that has been organised by the Cambridge Councils.
SPEP have organised various talks about energy saving measures and experiences of the various parish groups in Cambridgeshire.
LGEG write an article about energy saving matters in the Roundabout magazine most months.
