[ ADVERT: Sustainable Energy Action ]

Imagine a solar powered Elephant and Castle shopping
centre.. Want to live in a "Low Energy" neighbourhood?

Southwark Council and Sustainable Energy Action are
looking for residents in the Elephant and Castle area
to take part in some informal group discussions. We'll
talk about the supply of electricity and heating and
how to make it cheaper and greener as part of the
regeneration in the area. You don't need any special
knowledge. The discussions will be in groups of 5 or 6
people, last no more than 1 1/2 hours and be held
locally in the evenings. We'll give fifteen pounds plus
a couple of energy saving lightbulbs worth 12 for your
time. Interested?
