How to reduce water heating costs: A reminder that ARK and Thames Water are still able to offer free water saving retrofits to all houses in the upper Kennet. A typical installation includes new tap fittings, new showerheads, dual flush loos and a trigger hose for the garden. A typical home will save £85 per year as a result with a large part of that cost being not heating up water that is then wasted. In these flooded times water efficiency is a hard message to sell – but saving energy is closer to everyone’s heart.
The number to call to book a retrofit is: 0800 358 6665 - it’s free!
Transition Marlborough joined with the Mayor to call on the Energy Minister, Greg Barker to support the retrofitting of 1,000 energy-inefficient homes with solid wall insulation and biomass boilers in Marlborough Community Area, when he came to the Conservative Club recently.

Would your house like to star in an energy-efficient video? Wiltshire Council is sponsoring a retired BBC cameraman, Ali Cameron, to help us make a series of short videos to give people ideas on how to reduce carbon emissions and save on energy bills. If you have an interesting retrofit please write to Sam: firstname.lastname@example.org
