The Green Build group was set up to promote the reduction in energy use and thus carbon emissions among the householders and businesses in the Keswick area.  To this end we held an open public meeting where members of SusKes with experience of low energy and energy conservation systems gave short presentations.  Several local businesses which specialised in “green” energy &c. were also present to show off their wares.

We have compiled a database of local people who have installed such systems and who would be available to offer their experiences to those contemplating installing them.  Please be aware that we cannot provide technical advice but hope we can make it easier for other people by sharing our experiences.  This will be complemented by a list of local, Cumbria-based installers and providers of a range of energy saving and low or zero carbon technologies.

If you fall into any of the above categories we would be delighted to hear from you!

The Green Build group has broadened its remit to include energy efficiency and conservation in community and commercial buildings and is now known as the Energy Group. The group has a plan and lots of possible projects and initiatives, but really does need your help in setting priorities for Keswick and driving the projects though to a successful conclusion.
