Are you a local business, school, community group or household doing your bit to reduce energy use? If yes, we want to hear from you!
We are on the look out for the energy heroes of 2011.
Energy Heroes is aimed at everyone in the borough and recognises the achievements of local projects which are making a positive contribution to reducing energy use.
There are two categories of award, a community category which includes households, schools, voluntary and community groups and a business category which is open to all private sector businesses and not for profit organisations.
Judges will be looking for projects that have reduced energy in the last 12 months. Demonstration projects are also welcome.
