If you haven’t Calculated your CO2 emissions bring in your gas and electricity bills and we’ll work it out for you

To work out your personal carbon emmissions with the Carbon Equity calculator. The CO2 calculator addresss is: http://www.carbonequity.info/crags/calculator.html
You will need your last gas and electricity bill. On the bill will be a years worth of daily energy consumption in the form of a bar graph. Take the average of the bars and multiply by 365 to get your usage figure for the year and enter it into the CO2 calculator.

Note: if you are on Green power there is a section to put in the percentage as written on the bill.

For those who have completed this one, the next CO2 calculation includes food and the web address is:

Bring the results along to the next Get ClimateWise Now workshop (Thurs Jun 19)
or send your completed CO2 audits to the organisers via post or email a copy.
