My initiative to have an energy audit has paid off handsomely! We have just received the report and it has shown up a whole range of issues that we can look at to reduce our carbon footprint. There are a number of "unusual" activities on electric meter readings of council properties that will require more investigation. We can also see where fuel is consumed and which vehicles are underperforming.
Most importantly we now have a basepoint so we can compare with future audits - our aim will be to reduce our footprint.
We will be discussing the energy audit at out next council meeting and deciding how to progress.
