New Forest District Council (NFDC) is launching a new community energy programme in a bid to reduce carbon emissions and raise climate change awareness in the district.
The council is partnering with Community Energy South to deliver a two-year initiative that will support community groups in the New Forest to develop community-owned renewables, which will generate low-carbon heat and power and reduce energy use from the national grid. New Forest District Council is supporting the creation of the community energy groups by providing Community Energy South with £100k in funding.
On Tuesday 18 July, Community South and New Forest District Council are hosting a launch event for the programme at Lyndhurst Community Centre from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Residents, businesses and community groups are invited to find out more about the community energy programme and how they can get involved.
