We had a very busy and positive day at Penistone show near Barnsley on Saturday. A damp cold start early in the morning soon cleared to become a dry, sunny day. It was great meeting with local residents and businesses – lots of new friendly faces. It was fantastic to catch up with some of our existing customers who gave us some excellent feedback which is always good to hear.
As we are starting to have the autumn feel and winter looms it is very apparent how concerned people are about their energy bills setting to sore this winter. Homes & businesses are looking at several ways to reduce their energy consumption. For home owners we were able to give them the latest on the RHI incentive which is set to launch in spring 2014 offering customers that install a renewable heating technology government payments for 7 years. The payment structure will be available to nearly everyone – not just off gas as first thought. For businesses we were able to confirm that there will be no reduction in any of the commercial RHI tariff categories until January 2014.
As the dark nights draw in people showed great interest wanting their security alarms servicing and in the LED Security flood lights that we have on offer – a 20W LED equivalent to a 300W halogen, along with many more! Click here to read more on LED Lighting.
As at previous shows this year other energy saving green technologies that were also hot topics, were Solar PV Panels and Voltage Optimisation. To find out more about the green technologies available click here.
One unexpected area that took us by surprise this year were the enquiries we received from people with solar systems who had had them installed by others who were now no longer trading. Some had issues with what they had been sold – some were asking our advice on their generation predictions they had been given, whilst others just wanted to have a reliable company who they could call upon if they needed in the future. Our returning existing solar PV customers were all satisfied with their installations by us with one reported saying ‘fantastic, I am more than happy, it is 3 years since you sold me the system here at the show & we have exceeded your predictions’. We hope everyone now really believes that we want to still be here in years to come to provide the customer service that we promise after all its our reputation that has got us where we are today.
We hope that we have given people some food for thought and some alternative options which will help you reduce your energy bills but can also make a profit from your home or business. Maybe you won’t be as worried about your rising bills?!
