Chepstow Energy Network
A Chepstow based community network exists to address the challenges of dramatically increasing energy prices and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, in particular oil. The individuals include a core group of volunteers who donate their time to make related things ‘happen’ and a larger number of folk who have a particular energy interest and potentially want to tackle their own needs. The community focus of the network is on the energy needs of Chepstow, the surrounding villages and any or all in between.
The network was originally formed in 2009 and has successfully run a number of energy related initiatives including particularly on:
Current energy initiatives include:
- ‘Smart’ controllers for maximising use of PV (or wind) energy
- How to compare different energy types
- Recent gas and electricity price changes
- LED lights
Energy initiatives being developed and hoped for in the future include:
The Energy Network meets on the first Wednesday evening each month from 7.30 to 9.30 in The Bar, Beaufort Hotel, Chepstow. The meetings are very informal and open for all to raise any energy related topic.
