Simple Energy Saving Measures

Truro Eco Energy (TREE) have teamed up with local firm, Reflex Marine, with the aim of installing simple, but effective, energy saving measures for Truro householders. With a strong focus on providing energy efficiency services for housing in the UK and Europe under their new Energy Express banner, Reflex Marine are developing a business model based on delivering packages of light touch measures that can be installed quickly, efficiently and cheaply in the home meaning instant savings for the customer. This activity can then form part of a bigger energy efficiency plan for the householder if they wish.

Energy Express has already installed a number of low cost energy saving measures in homes in Shortlanesend as part of ongoing trials with energy meters, digital radiator valves, radiator reflectors, LED light bulbs, water saving showerheads and other simple measures, as well as providing a Green Deal assessment. They are now looking for a further 10 to 15 homes in Truro to extend the trials to further develop their concept with all measures installed free of charge.

CEO and co-founder of Reflex Marine, Philip Strong, said: “Our offer to the householder is to deliver energy efficiency measures to homes with minimal disruption and low cost, in comparison to the savings that can be made. This type of approach, we believe, will open the door and encourage householders to take up a Green Deal as a wider approach that can drastically improve a home ”

TREE is a local community group which is working to reduce Truro’s carbon footprint and reduce fuel poverty. “Our ultimate aim is to have a community project from which residents will benefit financially”, said Lindsay Southcombe, Chair of TREE. “In the meantime, we are looking at how people, especially the vulnerable, can be warmer and spend less on energy. This project is a brilliant example of how to do this simply, but effectively”.
