Builders’ Supply Company adds Green Energy Centre

Published:  23 September, 2011

CUMBRIA: The Builders’ Supply Company has added the Green Energy Centre to its business. Local Liberal Democratic MP Tim Farron will perform the opening ceremony of Centre on Wednesday 6 October.

The new department will be run by Jamie Kilduff who has been in the builders’ merchants trade for over 20 years.

“We are a forward-thinking company and take seriously the changes that are being driven forward by the Government and local authorities to help reduce our customers’ carbon footprint.

“We need to look at carbon reduction products that reduce the use of fossil fuels in people’s homes and businesses and save them money. Anyone who is thinking of reducing their energy bills in their home or business can now call into any branch of the Builders’ Supply Company to discuss their requirements.”

The Green Energy Centre provides a number of services relating to energy use for domestic and commercial properties. All these services are linked to a professional assessment report to provide freedom of information, which can help you identify the best and most relevant energy efficiency measures available, along with suitable renewable products that reduce carbon and energy.

“With the Government’s commitment to reducing the UK’s carbon emissions by 20% in 2020 and 80% by 2050 the challenge will come from the refurbishment of existing properties, most of which will still be in use in 40 years’ time,” said Mr Kilduff. “That requires changes to the main fabric of the building such as insulation, heating, hot water and lighting. All of these will be covered by the Green Deal, a financial incentive announced in the Government Spending Review.

“Our Centre aims to meet that challenge by having the right products and information available throughout our four branches Kendal, Barrow, Ulverston and Grange and will endeavour to answer questions and find the right information for our customers, from planning and available grants to cost savings, design and supply.”
