PTS to offer expertise at the 'Big Green Home Show'

Published:  25 September, 2009

LUTTERWORTH: PTS is to share its renewable energy expertise with self-builders at the Big Green Home Show, which takes place on 23-25 October at Buildstore's National Self Build & Renovation Centre in Swindon.

The three-day show is aimed at housebuilders who want to find out more about making their project sustainable and energy-efficient. The PTS stand will be showing the latest in solar PV technology whilst providing information on everything from heat pumps to under floor heating.

PTS product group manager for renewables and sustainable energy, Ian Stares, will be holding a seminar to answer eco questions. Mr Stares said: "As an official partner of BuildStore's TradeCard and a merchant leading the way in renewable technology, PTS is well qualified to hold seminars and demonstrations at the show. Building your own house provides a blank canvas and the perfect opportunity to install a whole host of renewable energy solutions at every stage of the build if appropriate.

"Through the seminars and the advice that is always available at the PTS stand, I hope we can inspire lots of Buildstore's visitors and communicate the support we can offer daily through our branch network."

In January 2009, PTS became an official partner to Buildstore and set up base permanently in the Trade Village at the National Self Build & Renovation Centre.
