FAQs for Thermal Imaging Camera Sessions

1. What is Sustainable St Albans?

Sustainable St Albans is a charity, previously known as Transition St Albans, run by volunteers, which encourages people to do local, practical things to live more sustainably.

2. Who funded the Sustainable St Albans cameras?

Sustainable St Albans has two thermal imaging cameras that residents can borrow. The first camera is based in Harpenden and was made possible with the help of a localities budget grant from Teresa Heritage, Herts County Councillor in 2014.

Building on the popularity of the Harpenden camera during the winters of 2014/15 and 2015/16, in March 2016 Sustainable St Albans was successful in obtaining localities budget grants for a second camera from Herts County Councillors Geoff Churchard (Sandridge), Robert Prowse (St Albans East) and Sandy Walkington (St Albans South). This second camera is based in various locations around the City and District of St Albans.
