Energy resources for Combe Martin

A grant for an energy survey was obtained by CMPC, which has been undertaken. Unfortunately, the survey did not identify opportunities for delivering alternative/cheaper energy resources within Combe Martin, at a level necessary for business investment. Whilst there are means of providing energy for individual households, they are not at the scale required to encourage inward investment.

The Project will be reviewed at intervals dependent on technological change and funding opportunities.
