Ashton Hayes Carbon Neutral Project has secured funding under DECC's LCCC programme to build one of the UK's first low carbon sports buildings on the community purchased recreation field, in the centre of the community. Plans are being finalised with the Ashton Hayes Sports & Recreation Association but the highly insulated building will also have PV and solar water heating panels on its roof which will contribute to the power and heat for changing rooms and the community owned electric vehicle - a Nissan Leaf, due for delivery shortly. More soon.
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 23% - by working together, sharing ideas and through behavioural change. We are about to start work on our community owned renewable energy power station.
