What is a Energy Neighbourhood? This is a group of 5 to 15 households who accepted the challenge to reduce their energy consumption by up to 9% over 4 months. The group would ideally live in the same neighbourhood or know each other from a club, society or residents group etc. Each neighbourhood has its own energy master - a householder who will lead the neighbourhood to glory! The energy master helps people on how to save energy. The energy master is given a full training and provided with the appropriate tools to aid success.
