Where We Do

Home Energy Centre  –  Inside

The Centre’s  permanent small showroom  in Chard provides leaflets and info-boards and Showcases different supplier’s products in order to give the householder a wide range of information and advice on energy-efficiency measures and renewable energy possibilities.

Open for browsing or advice & consultation

You can find us in the town centre of Ilminster (TA19 0DH) at the GreenHouse Cafe and Chard (TA20) with parking close by..

Ilminster (310)


Home Energy Centre – Outside

The Outside volunteer team attends with a stand at  local parish and community events,  from local produce markets and Big Breakfasts to County Shows and Green Festivals,  providing the opportunity to offer advice and information on energy-efficiency and energy-generation direct to the visitors

HEC Outside sets up a stall at a market, (often between the fruit & veg and the chutnies !), with a display or two alongside, and answers questions on all aspects of home energy efficiency, and also energy-generation such as pv panels. Heat pumps and wood-fuel boilers are currently among the frequent topics covered, either by advice on the spot or with an information leaflet

..if you have a parish or group event (outdoors or indoors) we would be pleased to attend and talk about energy-efficiency and energy-generation..
