IF YOU'RE looking to save money on your fuel bills and to make your house greener, Transition Town Exmouth may have the answer. On Monday 25 June the town's environmental group is holding a "learning" evening that aims to debunk the myths of energy in the home and to explore eco-energy options...

Held at Exmouth's Open Door Centre in Church Street at 7.30pm, "Energy In The Home" includes a screening of "Ecologic", an award-winning film co-produced by Exmouth Community College. There will also be input from Exmouth residents who have installed eco-energy equipment in their homes, advice from local eco-energy equipment suppliers and an opportunity to answer your questions.

"Ecologic" scooped gold at an awards ceremony at the Houses of Parliament last November. Co-produced by Exmouth Community College, East Devon District Council and Exeter TV company Pangaea Productions, the film focuses on sustainable energy in the home and for businesses. It follows three college students as they explore Devon-based greener energy solutions, and includes input from local companies Nu-Heat, Sungift Solar and Crealy Adventure Park.

Pros and cons

The energy feed-in tarrifs may have changed, but Transition Town Exmouth says that installing eco-energy equipment in your home remains a must if you have the financing and a suitable property. Exmouth residents who have done so will talk about their eco-installations and take you through the pros and cons, helping you to debunk the myths. Local eco-energy installation experts will also be on hand with more information, followed by a question and answer section.

Sam Forder, chairman of Transition Town Exmouth, says, "This is a great opportunity for anyone in the Exmouth community to come along, learn more about the current eco-energy options, ask questions and hear how they can save money on energy in their home, now and in the future."

All members of the public are welcome. £3 admission. Free refreshments.
