The vision of the steering group for the Blackpool, Glen & Ballyvolane (BG&B) sec is to protect the earth, save money & keep warm in the process.
The BG&B SEC is a voluntary gathering of people from the Blackpool, Glen & Ballyvolane area of Cork. Our aim is to improve the existing building fabric of properties in the area, to reduce the need for energy consumption in parallel with the integration of renewable energy sources. These measures will benefit the environment, lower energy bills and create energy independence while providing spaces that are more comfortable and contribute positively to the user’s health & wellbeing.
We intend to be the first diocese to work together on a large-scale community ‘Deep Retrofit’ project. This project will highlight the importance of creating more sustainable communities which use renewable energy.
