Following on from my last post, I was recently visited by an Interviewer from GfK NOP conducting a survey in the area on behalf of the Department of Energy and Climate Change. The questions were all about how we are reacting to energy conservation in the home, our attitude to climate change, our attitude to renewables. Many of the questions were focussed on quizzing me about the Transition Streets movement in Totnes. She visited several other houses in my street which is indeed a “Transition Street”.
I suppose the politicians in London are keen to find out how these grassroots “big society” schemes are actually working.
