Tamar Energy Community

Tamar Energy Community (TEC) was established in July 2014 to help the communities of the Tamar Valley and surrounding area engage in and benefit from the low carbon transition, tackle fuel poverty and generate income for local community projects.

TEC is governed by a board of local volunteer Directors and managed by a small team of passionate local people.
