About Us

We localise energy … with and for you

We’re all spending a lot of money on heating and powering our homes (around £16m per year, or £44,000 a day across the Tavistock area). With much of this spend going to the big power companies the majority of the benefit leaves our local economy like a leaking bucket.

By working together we can start to stem this flow in a number of ways:

  • We can make our homes and businesses more energy efficient and reduce the amount we need to spend
  • We can generate more locally, investing in micro-renewables at home or work.
  • We can look at opportunities to get together as a community and invest collectively in schemes which will deliver local benefit.
  • We can innovate and explore new opportunities emerging for local supply, distribution and flexibility services.
  • Importantly, we can work together to tackle fuel poverty across the area, aiming for everyone to be able to enjoy a warmer and more comfortable home.
