Muswell Hill Sustainability Group in British Gas Green Streets final

A team from Muswell Hill Sustainability Group (MHSG) got through to the finals of the British Gas Green Streets competition on 12th October 2009, in which community-based groups pitched for £150,000 to be awarded for energy efficiency projects. The MHSG proposal included a plan to set up a local cooperatively-owned energy services company which would produce and distribute electricity from renewable sources. Sadly, they were pipped to the post by a group from Richmond, but the experience of developing a detailed plan will be useful in future bids.
