In March 2011 Merton’s Green Doctors celebrated their 200th household visit in the Wandle Valley Low Carbon Zone (WVLCZ), taking the number of households in the area with energy saving measures in place to more than 120. See map.
The Green Doctor visits offer free tailored energy saving advice as well as installation of energy saving measures to residents living within the WVLCZ. As of July 2011 the Green Doctor has visited 32% of homes in the Wandle Valley Low Carbon Zone area. This has saved residents across the zone a massive £19,980, that’s 85,798 kg of C02 and 5,082,472 litres of water which is roughly the size of an Olympic swimming pool!
Merton Councillor Andrew Judge said: “Our goal is to reduce carbon emissions in the Wandle Valley Low Carbon Zone area by a total of 930 tonnes. It’s an ambitious target, but every small reduction in every home makes a difference. The Green Doctors are doing some invaluable work and it’s great to see the residents getting involved and seeing how easy going green can be.
Wandle Valley Low Carbon Zone
The Wandle Valley Low Carbon Zone (WVLCZ) is an area in a small part of South Mitcham near the Phipps Bridge, Cherry Tree and New Close Estates. This is one of 10 Low Carbon Zones across the capital. The aim is to make a 20% cut in CO2 emissions by March 2012 for the whole area.
