Fuel Comparison Costs

As winter approaches, OFTEC (a trade association for installers of heating) produce a regular cost comparison to help you decide which is the most efficient fuel to use in your home. This chart shows the costs for an annual space and water heating requirement of approximately 16,000kWh, which is what might be expected for a typical three bedroomed semi-detached house. Many factors will affect how much heat is needed for your home, so these figures are provided for guidance only, and will probably not reflect exactly what you might use in your own home. However, they do provide a basis for meaningful comparisons to be made.

What is Menheniot Green?

As part of its response to the challenge of climate change in Menheniot, Parish Councillors have set up a working group called Menheniot Green. A working group is a semi-independent group that includes both councillors and residents. It works informally outside of the council structures, but has a direct reporting line at every public meeting.


The group is set up to mitigate the effects of climate change and improve the environment in the parish. It will do this by carrying out tasks and other project work. It will achieve this by working with its diverse communities, stakeholders and other supportive people.


Menheniot Green has no general membership scheme. Residents do not ‘join’ but are encouraged to ‘join-in’ with practical help and support.


Management of the group will be the responsibility of the Chair, whose function will be served by two people – one Parish Councillor and one resident. The Parish Councillor will deliver progress reports to the Parish Council at their public meeting. Meetings of the group and its volunteers will take place on an ‘as required’ basis without formal notice.


The group will be administered by the parish clerk with a limit of 30 minutes per week (2 hours per month)
