COMMUNITY RENEWABLE ENERGY
The Parish Council has undertaken a feasibility study to provide a source of renewable energy within the Parish. This is now complete and details can be obtained from the clerk, or any member of the parish council. The study has shown that a community heat network is not viable at the moment, although this may change as central government develop their plans for carbon neutrality. The parish council do however intend to progress plans to replace our existing street lights with solar lighting.
A record of the presentation given on the 10th October can be viewed on the web page at www.thing-octon-renewables.co.uk . This site will also be update in due course with the full reports
A survey to assess your views and requirements regarding the upgrading of the street lights has been conclude, thank you to all those who contributed. Your views will be taken into account as we progress the plans. see attached . Survey results here
