As part of the LEAF project run by AHCE we commissioned the New Economics Foundation to examine how we could quantify the social benefits associated with our project. Our report makes fascinating and useful reading and might help other like-minded communities assess the impacts of sustainable living. Thanks to the NEF for all their effort and public engagement.
Now in Association with
Ashton Hayes Community Energy CIC
Located in rural Cheshire, Ashton Hayes is a well knit community of about 1000 people that is aiming to become England's first carbon neutral community. We started our journey in January 2006 and since then we have already cut our carbon dioxide emissions by 40% - by working together, sharing ideas and through behavioural change. We now have our community owned renewable energy company.
This website encapsulates our journey towards carbon neutrality and offers free advice and guidance. Please feel free to use anything from our website (we'd like a credit if you can).
