Happy new year!

Yes, unbelievably it’s 2019 already, and there’s loads to look forward to this year.

Let’s recap another great month here the in community :o

@MrSmart was our December member in the spotlight which is a great way of finding out a bit more about community Members.

@woz penned this great Christmas song which mysteriously did not make the shortlist of this poll from Bev on our favourite ever Christmas songs.

@Duppy is looking for info on what to do with unused radiators in empty rooms, while @Oakbank shared some tips on reducing energy usage at home, and started a great discussion.

Thanks to those who supported our reverse advent calendar. We donated several bags and boxes of useful clothing, food and toiletries just before Christmas to a local charity which supports homeless people.

Anyone getting into cycling as part of their New Year resolution should join a new Strava group created by @Skill. Whereas Members who prefer their wheels motorised may be keen on this debate between electricity and hydrogen. Thanks to @Egg47 for kicking it off. :up:




Looking ahead to 2019

We’ve got lots of exciting stuff coming your way this year.

First up there will be a design refresh of the community homepage going live at the end of the month. This will make it look brighter and more aligned to our website. Thanks to all those Members who have given us top feedback on early designs.

The bigger project is the rollout of 2nd generation smart meters (SMETS2). We’ve had so many Members volunteer to be part of the first pilot - too many to include everyone!

Once the pilot is up and running we will post regular updates in the community so that all Members know the latest.

Each month we say thanks to those who contribute to our community by asking and answering questions and participating in discussions on all things related to Pure Planet and renewable energy, and just generally keeping the community safe and fun.

Yes, it was lovely. Stayed at a treehouse for a couple of days. It was pretty amazing I'll upload pics at some point.
