How to slash your energy bills and win a share of £100k
Groups and organizations who’re actively interested in reducing their energy bills and even obtain the necessary funding for projects promoting energy efficiency will be able to do so as part of a new community energy competition launched by the DECC (Department of Energy & Climate Change).
Community groups and other eligible organisations across England – such as local authorities or parish councils, charities, faith groups, social landlords, trusts, community interest companies or co-operatives – are invited to apply for the funding to develop innovative energy-saving ideas that could help slash energy bills.
Ideas can be anything from hosting an energy advice stall in your local shopping centre, to crowd-funding solar panels for your local church or running a ‘buddy’ programme to help vulnerable households get to grips with their energy bills, switch energy suppliers and save money.
Energy and Climate Change Secretary Edward Davey said:
“We’re looking for communities to tell us how they want to take control of the energy they use so they can cut their bills.
“Local people will know what works best in their areas, and their ideas will help driving even more investment into local energy projects.”
Applications close on 10 February 2015, with the winners due to be announced shortly afterwards. Successful applicants will need to deliver their idea by the end of March 2015.
In terms of affordable, yet effective energy saving measures, the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves are the easiest to install and most cost-effective energy-saving measures on the market. They are particularly suitable for retrofitting, since one simply has to remove the existing TRV and replace it with the HeatSave unit.
The wireless thermostatic radiator valves enable users to set specific functioning times for each valve, and, since radiators are individually controlled, home owners are fully capable to maximise the zoning potential and reduce energy consumption in those areas that are not used for longer periods of time (as for example, dining or sitting rooms and kitchens during the night, etc.).
Additionally, the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves also provide an automatic exercising feature when unused for 7 days, whose purpose is to minimise seizing of radiator valves in warmer months.
All in all, the HeatSave TRVs enable users to achieve some pretty impressive savings, as they will help reduce your heating bills by up to 30%, especially when coupled with the HeatingSave Building Energy Management System.
