Funding for this work was raised through the Rural Community Energy Fund (RCEF) by Ed Gommon of Zero Carbon Liverpool City Region. https://www.facebook.com/ZeroCarbonLiverpool/

The Sefton Climate Action group have given the project their support and many local members have been active, particularly in getting the questionnaire circulated.
