Finger Crossed

So next Tuesday we will know whether or not we are receiving a grant for 50% towards the cost of making our own energy for the business.

We've been doing some really interesting work with the marches energy association, they sent out some energy assessors and over some time we've been establishing if it will be possible for us to produce enough energy so we don't have to draw any from the grid for our office based operations (computers, battery charging, lights, heating, that sort of thing).

The plan is to instal some of these..One of these (not sooo big..).. and then we can keep this chap here on top of the ice and not swimming in the water..

It's not been as simple as we thought it might have been in the first place in fact we are going to have to change everything at our offices, so we use less energy and thus need to produce less to meet our needs. But that is a small price to pay for doing things the right way. Very soon we'll be pretty much Carbon Neutral. We already help lots of other people reduce their carbon footprints and we are somewhat in credit, the last piece of the jigsaw is to find out power from the energy which surrounds us.

It's a great project, so fingers crossed for next Tuesday when we find out if we have the grant or not!

Have a great weekend.
