Smart Communities 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.
Working together to save energy
If you live in South West London, you can receive tips on energy saving, invitations to events and the opportunity to request a free home visit from our energy advisors. During the visit, they will give you practical advice on how to cut your energy use. They will also give you free energy saving equipment and an Owl energy monitor so you can track how much electricity you’re using.
If you would like us to visit your school or community building in South West London now, then just email us. We will be running home visits again in Oct 2016 in selected locations.
