Switch to LED

Together with the people of the village of Houtem, the city council of Veurne and its partners want to reduce energy consumption by 20 % by 2020 and move towards community-based energy production. Their first action is to make inhabitants aware of the positive effects of LED relighting.

During this event, people from the village can visit one of the local homes, find out about and see LED lighting in action, and purchase lightbulbs at a reduced price.

In the weeks before the event, we will replace all the lightbulbs in this house with LED lightbulbs. We will show by how much energy consumption is reduced and what the payback period is for the small investment.

The event is organised in co-operation with Impact vzw , BasBouwen vzw, Samenlevingsopbouw West-Vlaanderen vzw en gebiedswerking Provincie West-Vlaanderen and with subsidies from the European rural development programme LEADER.
