Domestic Heating (Oil & Gas) – Actual vs Target

The chart estimates total parish emissions from heating based on usage submitted by parishioners. It shows the reductions needed (in blue) to reach zero by 2030. Each year, we ask as many as possible to enter their latest usage data to see how we’re doing against the parish council’s aim.

Please now enter your usage for 2020. Don’t worry if you didn’t submit 2019. More people are joining in as we go, making the statistical estimates progressively more accurate.

Submit your data

If you have a neighbour who isn’t comfortable using the internet, they can contact Simon Oldridge on 07889 379910 for help submitting their data.

Graphs and data on this page will update automatically 5 or 10 mins after you enter your data.

Actual data will accumulate on this graph each year, giving us a sense of whether the parish is on track in its aim to achieve zero carbon. This is a bold target and it won’t be surprising if we’re behind. But if we aren’t on track, we need to know about it.  Then we can approach the district and county councils and Anthony Mangnall MP for more funding support.  After all, it is not cheap to transition away from oil – beyond the financial means of many.

The data that we are gathering here may help parishioners benefit from improved financial support for insulation or green heating – so please join in. 

Currently around 14% of households in the parish have participated. The more houses, the better our estimated emissions will be. The following graph shows how many households have participated so far, out of a total of 356 houses.

NB No individual data will be shown. This project is about reducing the carbon emissions of the whole parish.
