Transition Mayfield is considering the possibility of a renewable energy project and is seeking to establish whether there would be support for this in Mayfield and Five Ashes.
The speakers at the meeting will include Ollie Pendered of Community Energy South and Sarah James Wright from Forest Row Energy.
By reducing dependence on fossil fuel based energy generation communities can secure future energy supply, be shielded from rising fuel costs and duties and reduce the risk of fuel poverty. Income from renewable projects can be used to provide benefits to the community with the creation of jobs and promoting social cohesion. A Rural Community Energy Fund is available to help communities benefit economically and socially from renewable energy projects.
