Sustainable Living – for Meldreth Parish

The Sustainable Parish Energy Partnership (SPEP) is an initiative sponsored by South Cambridgeshire District Council and currently has 23 partnership parishes. Meldreth joined in 2011 and is still developing its strategies and recruiting a small cadre of volunteers to help run the scheme.

Hopefully, by next year we will be able to report about our achievements on this page.

For the moment we really need about 6 people to come forward to join the group.

We need folk who can:

-deliver leaflets
-have ideas about sustainability and have the drive to help put them into practice
-be prepared to help with promotional displays at various village functions
-get involved in other activities such as helping with installing and progressing energy monitoring and checking heat loss with infra red cameras
SPEP Meldreth has free energy monitors to loan out and for those interested in finding out where their energy costs are being wasted, we are able to measure heat loss from houses!

Whether or not you think climate change is coming; its a racing certainty that energy costs, electricity, gas, oil, water, are all going to cost us more.

So What does SPEP really do?

SPEP aims to raise awareness in local communities about sustainability, help households to save energy costs and promote sustainability of all our precious natural resources which none of us can afford to use unnecessarily or waste.
