Imagine a free solar array for your home, combined with a full eco-makeover to eliminate draughts, improve comfort, efficiency and air quality. That's the prize on offer to green minded UK householders right now. It's just one part of the 10:10 Campaign's call to cut UK carbon emissions by 10% by 2010. (See also their search for the Voice of Green Britain.) So what do you have to do to qualify? Not that much, as it happens. Essentially the competition is open to each and every household that joins the 10:10 Campaign and pledges to cut their carbon emissions by 10% in the next year. The winner will receive a solar photovoltaic array from Solarcentury worth £10,000 (about $15,000) to create clean, green energy for their home, as well as a complete eco-makeover as part of the Grand Designs 'Great British Refurb. All in all, the prize is valued at around £15,000 ($22,500).
It's definitely one way to motivate people to take action!
