Your Energy Team

NTLP is supporting enthusiasts in communities in North Tipperary who would like to coordinate a community insulation and retrofit scheme in their locality.

The first step in a community energy scheme is to get a group of interested people together. If you’d like to see economic activity and/or environmental activity in your community you might be passionate enough to see this project through. An ‘Energy Team’ will ideally be formed from this group of enthusiasts to drive forward a local energy project.
