  • Prosiect Sero Net Gwynedd

    Adra have been successful in receiving funding from the UK Government’s Shared Prosperity Fund in partnership with many key organisations such as DEG, Grwp Cynefin, Cyngor Gwynedd and a number of community enterprises. The aim of the project is to help meet carbon emission targets through awareness raising, retrofit, engagement and highlighting of career opportunities.

    Specifically, a team of trained energy officers will work within Gwynedd communities to help residents improve the energy efficiency of their homes, help reduce costs and riase awareness.

    We will also be providing decarbonisation reports to a number of community hubs in Gwynedd and completing retrofit works with the installation of renewable technologies.
