Energy Efficiency Advice
Action Surrey offers advice to residents, schools and businesses on how to reduce energy and water consumption from existing buildings and manages a network of trusted, local and experienced installers who can install insulation, replace boilers and are experts in solar and other microgeneration technology.
Between 2009 and 2012 Action Surrey has:
- Assisted the installation of 2,500 domestic energy efficiency and renewable technology improvements
- Saved 52,000 lifetime tonnes of CO2
- Saved residents over £250,000 in energy bills
- Established a network of exemplar low carbon homes that others can read about and be inspired by
Action Surrey now assists all councils in Surrey with rolling out Green Deal and the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) in their area. The programme provides impartial energy advice, explains how the Green Deal works and has partnered with a panel of Green Deal ‘Providers’ in assisting residents to access the ECO subsidy and Green Deal finance.
