The CAG Project is working with 4 “Low Carbon” Community Action Groups (CAGs) in the East Oxford area to help “power down” neighbourhoods through a thermal imaging project. Thermal imaging is a powerful tool for engagement to help people understand more about energy efficiency in the home, save money and reduce their carbon footprint.
Funded by the Low Carbon Hub, through their community grant scheme, Low Carbon East Oxford, Rose Hill & Iffley Low Carbon, Low Carbon Headington and a new CAG, Florence Park Low Carbon and Environment Group will be conducting thermal imaging surveys of homes and giving out energy saving advice and devices such as draught-proofing and radiator foil.
The groups are currently looking for more volunteering to help deliver the visits. The volunteers will receive training on how to conduct thermal imaging which will provide great experience to anyone interested in the low carbon sector or wanting to make their own home more cosy. It will also be a great way to get to know your neighbours. The volunteers should be based in the East Oxford area.
To participate, you should be willing to attend an evening training event (date TBC) and several evenings of home visits between January and March.
