SWLEN’s Smart Communities project works with households, schools, charities and community groups to help them to save energy, reduce bills and improve the environment. Smart Communities can help you change the things you use every day, such as lighting, heating, cleaning and entertaining, to enable you – and all your community – to use less energy.

If you would like us to visit your school or community building in South West London please email us.

What’s happening

Our energy saving project at the Cambridge Road Estate in Kingston and Sheephouse Way in Malden Manor ran from October 2015 to April 2016, funded by Kingston Council. We visited 27 homes saving an estimated £1481 from their household bills and 7420 kg of carbon dioxide emissions.

Kingston Council has recently confirmed that it will be funding us again in 2016-17 to work with residents at School Lane in Tolworth and Alpha Road in Surbiton.  We will also be working with Kingston primary schools to save them money on their fuel and water bills and help them to fight climate change.
