Community Energy Switch – do the survey today!

Sustainable Chesham have partnered with Big Clean Switch to try and help people in Chesham to use more renewable energy at home. It’s cheaper than installing solar panels and it’s a way of reducing your carbon footprint with relatively little effort.

Energy companies now make it so easy to switch – and we’ve found that the Big Clean Switch service is super-easy to use and guarantees that your electricity is from 100% renewable sources.

But we don’t know how many houses in Chesham are already using green energy. Are you? If you aren’t yet, would you switch? What has put you off or prevented you switching in the past?

We want to know if Chesham is already reducing its carbon footprint by switching, or if our community needs more information and support to switch to renewable energy.

Please fill out this very quick survey and let us know how you feel about switching to a green energy supplier, or you can tell us that you already have. Click here to complete the survey – it will only take 2 minutes!

What is renewable energy?

Renewable, or ‘green’ or ‘clean’ energy comes from natural sources or processes that are constantly replenished. So this is energy generated from the elements – sun, wind, water (rivers, tides or wave power) and biofuels (gas released by rotting food and agricultural waste). Unlike electricity generated by burning fossil fuels (oil, coal and gas), renewable energy has little impact on climate change and air pollution.
