Green Journey newsletter offers advice on energy this autumn

First published on: 31st August 2022

Green Journey is offering helpful advice and guidance to churches as energy prices rise in their latest newsletter.

The newest issue provides an update on current market conditions, alongside advice to our churches, energy saving tips to help keep church bills down, and relevant industry and environment news.

The Green Journey scheme was started as a joint venture between the Diocese of Leeds and Green Energy Consulting to help churches reduce their energy costs and their carbon footprints.

Jemima Parker, Diocesan Environment Officer, said: “Rapidly rising energy prices are a concern for all of us as we want to keep our churches open, warm, and welcoming places without costing the earth. 

“We are fortunate to be able to draw on the advice from our partners Green Energy Consulting, who are experts in energy procurement. 

“Now is a good time for all of us to be reviewing how we use energy and taking the basic steps to be more efficient. 

“Then we need to have the harder conversations about how to move away from fossil fuels and perhaps start generating our own electricity.

“Approximately 250 churches in the diocese already use the Green Journey scheme to buy carbon neutral gas and/or 100% renewable electricity. 

“Many of these churches are currently benefiting from being on a three-year contract set at 2019 prices.”

The newsletter can be read here, with instructions on how to subscribe contained within.
