Supplier chooses Winsford for energy advice trial

Residents helped to improve energy efficiency

5 March 2012

Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Climate Change Champion, Councillor Hugo Deynem, welcomes the trial being run in Winsford by energy supplier EON.

Trained advisors will be in and around the town from today (5 March) until Saturday, 24 March, to talk to residents about their energy use.

The focus will be on reducing energy consumption and improving the efficiency in homes and workplaces through specific advice and support.

Particular focus will be given to those households who spend more than 10 percent of their income on energy bills, placing them in the ‘fuel poverty’ sector.

Councillor Deynem said: "As Climate Change Champion for Cheshire West and Chester, I very much welcome the aims of this type of approach by any energy supplier in tackling the impact of high fuel costs and reducing emissions through improved energy efficiency and the installation of more effective insulation measures.

“I am particularly pleased that EON has chosen Winsford to run this trial and look forward to the benefits that targeted specific advice will bring to the residents of the town.”
