The Green Centre is now opening mid week
as well as on each Saturday for advice on all Energy
matters and recycling. Mid week opening is every Wednesday
from 10am to 2pm when you will be able to meet CAT as a
first contact on any environmental matters.
Centre is no longer located at Silverdale. The conditions
imposed by the landlord at the renewal of the lease has
meant that it is no longer possible to operate from the
Cregg Mill site.
We are now
operating from the 'cop shop' in Douglas jointly with Zero
Waste Mann and Isle of Man Friends of the Earth. The 'cop
shop' has now been re named 'The Green Centre' and advice
on all Energy matters and recycling can be obtained from
the centre free of charge. We are open every Saturday from
10am to 4pm.
equipment used to generate power from the water at Cregg
Mill has been put into Storage. We hope to be able to
re-fit it to another water wheel in the future in order
that the public can again see the capability of water
wheels to generate electricity.

The Advice Centre Opened on the 26th
June 2004, in Cregg Mill at Silverdale. The old water
wheel has been refurbished an a 6kW alternator fitted to
allow the energy to be used via inverters and also stored
in a battery bank. This is aimed at acting as a focal
point for the centre. The primary aim of MEAC being to
give advice on energy efficiency.
