Re-wilding project – Co op field, Chesham.

Big Clean Switch

In July 2021 we set up a survey to assess local appetite and motivations for energy-switching.

We are following this up with a campaign to encourage people to switch to green energy suppliers via the Big Clean Switch website which will donate a small amount to Sustainable Chesham for every person that switches via the Big Clean Switch Partners page ( ). This money will be spent on local sustainable projects.

The overall aims for the Sustainable Chesham strategy to promote clean energy are as follows:

  1. To provide a reliable source of information for the community on renewable energy providers and the best suppliers and tariffs available.
  2. To educate: to debunk some of the myths about ‘green/clean energy’ and provide simple, easy to understand information for consumers to make informed decisions about their energy suppliers and the choices available.
  3. To encourage & empower people to understand the choices available and how they can make a difference to their carbon footprint and that of the town by switching supplier/and/or tariff.
  4. To make a difference to the town’s carbon footprint by reaching out to individuals and companies within Chesham and the surrounding villages and getting as many people as possible to switch to ‘clean energy’.

It’s a quick and easy way to engage the community and connect with a large number of householders to make a big impact on the whole town’s carbon footprint. We hope to encourage as many people as possible to switch to an energy provider who supplies energy from renewable sources. If you would like to get involved with this project, please get in touch.
