Two more merchant partners sign up with Green Energy Centre

Published:  18 June, 2012

UK: Builders Supplies (West Coast) in West Lancashire and Higgins of Wellingborough in Northamptonshire have each taken up Green Energy Centre franchises during May.

Peter Worthington, managing director of BSWC and Nigel Higgins, managing director of Higgins, see it as a major opportunity to expand their existing businesses. Mr Worthington and Mr Higgins recognized that merchants need to provide a broad offering for energy efficiency and renewables which was not just about being focused on government incentives which may be here today and gone tomorrow. They see the addition of the Green Energy Centre as a means to add long term strengths to their businesses through brand creation, training and products. Both agree on the benefits that this value added service brings and what it will bring to their customers in preparation for the low carbon future.

Also during May the Construction Products Association published “Green Deal – Opportunities for Industry” which is available on the CPA website. This comprehensive report contains a vast amount of information including case studies, one of which is from the Green Energy Centre.

Lorcan Anglin, managing director of Green Energy Centre Limited stated: “We are delighted to be working with Peter and Nigel. Merchants, who ignore the huge opportunity presented by low carbon future will ultimately lose sales. We firmly believe that independent merchants will play a vital part in the low carbon future.”

“Our offer generates revenue for merchants immediately without having to wait for new legislation such as the Green Deal, but will also comply with it when it does arrive. I am delighted to see that these two forward thinking merchant have embraced this concept and I have no doubt they will reap the benefits in a very short space of time.”
