Benefits of a Deep Retrofit with Energy Communities Tipperary Cooperative
What are the benefits of a Deep Retrofit? Listen to a first hand experience!
We managed to do a quick voxpop with John Coffey at our recent Energy Info Event in Ballagh Social Centre. John completed a deep retrofit through Energy Communities Tipperary Cooperative CLG. In this video he tells us of his experience and the new warmth and comfort in his home.
Webinar – 17th June 2021
Recording of Energy Communities Tipperary Cooperative Home Energy Upgrades Information Webinar held on Thursday 17th June 2021. Aileen Campion from Birdhill and adjudicator with Tidy Towns will briefly discuss the benefits of community energy projects. The Tidy Towns movement & retrofitting of homes dovetails nicely together – whether it’s focusing on relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Sustainability – Doing More with less – a community’s involvement in initiatives around energy saving pays dividends.
Learn from our Project Coordinator Marcella Maher Keogh how to make your home warmer, cosier and healthier, while also saving money on home energy bills and benefitting the environment. Grants are currently available through the SEAI for measures which include: Attic Insulation; Heating Controls; Cavity, Internal & External Wall Insulation; Heat Pumps; Wood Burning Stoves; Windows and Doors; Solar panels – PV & Water.
