Churches choose renewable energy, save on energy bills

More than 400 churches across the UK have agreed to switch to renewable energy providers as part of the Big Church Switch scheme, which was launched on 10 February by charities Christian Aid and Tearfund to coincide with the beginning of Lent.

The initiative invites churches and individuals to transition away from fossil fuels and will use the combined weight of their energy bill payments to find the best deal.

Churches are able to apply to the switch via the initiative’s online platform, which registers them with national buying group 2Buy2. Clean energy suppliers will then be approached using the collective buying power of the churches to secure the best deal.

Ben Niblett, senior campaigner for Tearfund, said: “We’re so encouraged by this growing movement – Christians around the UK have taken action and had a big impact on our carbon footprint by taking part in The Big Church Switch. We’re loving our neighbours with our electricity bills.”

Implementing a very effective energy management system will also likely contribute to achieving significant savings and that’s exactly where the HeatSave programmable wireless thermostatic valves can really come in handy.

The HeatSave wireless thermostatic valves represent a very good solution for the healthcare industry, where energy costs are 2nd only to labour costs. That’s because the TRVs can help customers slash their energy bills by up to an impressive 30 percent by allowing them to thoroughly control the heating patterns for every single one of their radiators.

Moreover, it’s quite likely that the hospital could benefit from the financial advantages provided by the Government’s Green Deal scheme, given the fact that the HeatSave valves represent an approved measure to control radiators under the aforementioned programme.
