We are happy to announce that we’ve just launched our new website to help local residents and organisations stay warm, reduce their energy costs, and reduce their environmental impact.

But what exactly is on the new website? Below, have a look at some of the key features that we think you will find useful:

Virtual house

This is an interactive tool that allows you to explore an average house so you can get tips on what you could be doing to use energy more efficiently. This is anything from investing in insulation for your home, down to how to arrange your furniture to maximise your heating system.

For many of the tips, you can follow links and find out how you can make these improvements through Action Surrey, and make an enquiry using our simple online form.

Insulation

There are a few different ways that you can insulate a home. Visit this page to find out what you can do through our installer network, and about any grants that are available to help pay for it.

Renewables

It’s not all about solar you know (although solar is very important). There are several viable options for a household looking to reduce their environmental impact. Some can even save you money compared to conventional heat and electricity generation. Have a look at this page to find out more.

Help for residents

We’ll be keeping this section up to date with lots of information on support available to residents regarding financial aid, tariff switching, and general tips on keeping warm and well.

We’ve also got a ‘help for communities’, and ‘help for businesses’ section with educational resources, and up to date information on funding opportunities and projects you could get involved with.

Case studies

Thinking about making an improvement to your property, but unsure of the effects it might have and whether it will be worth it? Have a look at some of our case studies to see the impact that Action Surrey’s installer network has had in the past.

Community blog

If you sign up to our website, then you have the opportunity to put your opinions forward through our community blog. This feature allows members to submit relevant articles on issues they feel passionately about such as sustainability policy, renewable energy, better ways to improve our homes and more. We’re hoping there will be lots of vibrant things appearing here in the coming months.

You can also check this section to see if there are any sustainability related events happening in your area, and how you can get involved.

Our newsletters

Finally, to keep up to date with our work and any new funding opportunities or projects to be involved with, you can sign up to our newsletter which goes out roughly once a month so you won’t miss out on anything.

We do hope you get something out of our new site, and if you would like to give us any feedback or ask a question then please get in touch using our contact form: we’d love to hear from you.
