Hook Norton Low Carbon Ltd is a Mutual Society set up for the benefit of the local community and environment.
Our purpose is to improve the energy efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint of the community by promoting the implementation of carbon reduction and renewable energy initiatives at a local and individual level within and around Hook Norton. Our key aim is to provide a legacy for future generations within Hook Norton and wider community where energy supply and usage does not impact upon our planet and lifestyle.
We are a Co-operative and Community Benefit Society, set up to help the community reduce its energy consumption, carbon emissions and save money. We run a range of community-based schemes, including the provision of the solar panels and insulation work at the school, and also individual household projects based on interest-free or low cost loans.
We also have a Community Car Club and a waste-oil biodiesel supply in the village, and run the Community Swap Shops every year.
For a £1 fee, anyone who supports the aims of HNLC can become a shareholder in HNLC and help run and benefit from the projects it undertakes.
