Energy Saved

Gordon Taylor"Delighted!" is school technician Gordon Taylor's response to new
movement sensor light switches at Stafford Sports College.

Many people in and around Stafford have benefitted from energy-saving changes to their community buildings, and some have even gained a valuable source of income from installing solar panels. The buildings featured in this section include community centres, village halls, churches, schools, a football club and even a sandwich bar!

They should inspire and encourage you if you are thinking about doing something similar for a building you know – whether to makeElaine Evans it more economical to run, create a warmer and more comfortable space, or reduce its carbon footprint.

"Energy efficiency measures and a cheaper tariff are saving my church £2000 a year," says the Rev'd Elaine Evans, vicar of St Bertelin's Church, Stafford.

Most of these examples have happened as a result of communities, neighbourhoods and groups working together, helped and supported by Stafford Borough Council, Sustainability Matters, or other agencies.

Often they have been part of broader projects with the aim of creating stronger and more caring communities that are adopting more eco-friendly lifestyles. See the Borough Council's Sustainable Communities pages for more details. If you want help with your own building or community project, email at Stafford Area Save Your Energy.
