Burnley Leads the Way with First High Street ‘Energy Saving Centre’
Burnley is about to become the first town in the UK to have a dedicated Mr Electric Energy Saving Centre, providing advice and services to local people and businesses who can make significant savings by becoming more energy efficient.
Local Burnley man, Neville Yates operates under the Mr Electric brand and is the driving force behind the new initiative which opens its doors to the public with a launch event at 78, Burnley Road, Padiham at 1pm on Thursday 24 July, joined by local MP Gordon Birtwistle.
The Centre will be a one-stop shop to help people with smart meters, insulation and advice on how to benefit from the Government’s new Green Deal Improvement Fund (GDHIF). Mr Electric is one of a few local companies registered to implement the scheme which is open to all householders wishing to improve the energy efficiency of their homes. It allows them to choose one of both of two core offers and they may also be eligible to claim up to £7,600 as a bundled package.
Commenting on the Centre’s opening, Neville said, “Our business, Mr Electric is well known in the area as we look after many residential and commercial clients. We identified that many people know they could be making energy savings but aren’t sure how or where to go, so as an extension to our existing business we are delighted to be bringing the Mr Electric Energy Saving Centre to Burnley. For me it’s a no-brainer. People can pop along, get some expert advice and save themselves significant amounts of money – what’s not to like?”
He continued, “Bills are going up and up and there is no sign of them going down in the future and this poses a real strain on family budgets. The average household can waste up to 50% of its energy consumption so everything we can do to help will be a saving. We would like to welcome local people to come and take a look at what’s on offer and to join in the fun of the opening, we will have demonstrations on how to save money and energy plus a visit from our Mr Electric mascot, Mr Sparky.”
