The Energy Look Outs!

Ever passed by an office block late at night and wondered what all those lights are doing on?

Or seen 'patio heaters' blazing away outside a cafe radiating heat and carbon into thin air with nobody in sight?

This new initiative now enables you to mobilise that curiosity and reaction into action!

We are all responsible for good stewardship of resources, and in Transition Norwich we have an ideal vehicle for engaging with businesses where we find behaviour is not matching rhetoric.

Local authorities have asked for citizen involvement in making decisions about efficiency savings, and the retail sector in particular is the main interface between individuals and the business sector.

So - we are starting with a reporting process whereby anyone can report to us a concern about energy or resource waste, and we will take this up with the particular business concerned. We will then engage with the relevant part of the organisation or business concerned, with a view to positively reporting any changes they make as a result of community concerns. Chris Hull

Report your concern by e-mailing chrishull@phonecoop.coop. Watch this space for our next meeting to further develop this initiative!
