Green Llangattock is Streets Ahead

Llangattock Green Valleys has won the British Gas Green Streets competition. Last week was the final judging for the Green Streets in London where three finalists presented their ideas for saving energy.

They were judged alongside another Green Valleys Community, Grwyne Fawr, and a group from Chepstow. The win means that Llanattock Green Valleys will receive a package of support from British Gas worth an estimated £140,000.

The Llangattock pitch included proposals for a community-owned hydro generator which has the potential to supply 60% of the total electricity needs of the village, as well as a solar photo voltaic array for the village school, and a carbon audit of 20 homes in the village - coupled with an effort to massively reduce their energy demands through improved insulation and energy efficiency measures. The pitch also included plans to provide irrigation to the newly established community allotments in the village.
