Big decisions were made at last night’s CREW team meeting. In response to the Government’s decision to devastate the solar industry, we’re going to set up as an Energy Services Company (ESCO). This allows CREW to continue to work with community partners on a range of different renewable energy and energy efficiency projects, without only being confined to solar projects.
To kick off this new phase for CREW, we want to bring an LED light revolution to Wandsworth. We’re looking for community partners – schools, community centres, housing associations, businesses – who would like to save up to 90% on their lighting bills.
By switching standard lightbulbs for LED lights, it is possible to save up to 90% of the energy used in lighting a building. This not only saves a lot money, but also dramatically reduces the amount of energy usage too – reducing carbon emissions. We will provide the up-front money and expertise to install the lights, and then you pay us back over time from the savings on your energy bills.
If you would like to find out more, email crew at: firstname.lastname@example.org
To reflect these exciting changes CREW is redrafting the constitution, re-energising the working groups and refreshing the website. We’ll also be pushing ahead with legally registering our group. This will enable us to enter into contractual relationships with community partners to bring LED lights to Wandsworth. If you’re keen to join the group of CREW’s volunteers or offer your expertise and support, then please email us to find out about our next meeting.
