Cloughmills Community Action Team begin their energy saving Quest

Friday, May 31, 2013

Cloughmills Community Action Team (CCAT) has officially begun their energy saving crusade after completing step one of Quest. They are now closer to the £10,000 prize which they can use for renewable technology of their choice and other energy saving measures for their community.

Step one was a community meeting with their group mentor Neil Coleman.  At this meeting they were given a presentation on the background to Power NI, the benefits of saving energy and what they can expect throughout the rest of the Quest competition.

They have now advanced on to step two, completing 100 online Home Energy Checks. Patrick Frew from CCAT said; ‘’We want to put the whole village in control of saving energy and saving money, which is why we are so happy to have finally started Quest.  We began the challenge on a positive note and are looking forward to the rest of the steps.’’

Group mentor, Neil Coleman added; There was a great turn out for Cloughmills’ first step. It was encouraging to see so many people supporting the group and their participation in the challenge as that is what Quest is all about.  Their determination to succeed will make a vast difference within their community.’’ Before moving on to step three, Cloughmills Community Action Team must complete 100 online Home Energy Checks.
