EBS businesses exhibit at Energy Saving Event in North Yorkshire

19th January 2023


This month, Green Building Renewables and Green Building Store will be helping residents from in and around Wetherby to understand how installing solar panels switching to low carbon heating, and improving the fabric of their houses are ways to make their houses more energy efficient and comfortable places to live. Both Efficient Building Solution businesses will be advising in Wetherby Town Hall on Saturday, 28th January. 

The free event has been organised by Boston Spa, Wetherby and Villages Community Green Group and is supported by Friends of the Earth. The focus is on ways to conserve energy and reduce energy bills. The event follows a successful Eco-Energy Fair held in September 2022.  

Many people are struggling to cope with the steep rise in energy costs that have hit households and businesses hard during the past year. Although the government has taken action to help with energy bills and cap energy prices, the cap will be raised again in April 2023, and prices will be even higher. So, with inflation at its highest level for many years and a cost of living crisis, conserving energy and keeping costs manageable is a priority for many people.     

There will be several displays with presentations on various issues on saving energy, retrofitting insulation, installing low carbon solar and heat pumps, renewable energy and the latest grant funding. There will be tips, practical advice, a public forum for anyone to raise questions, children’s activities and warm refreshments.

Green Building Renewables' Commercial Sales Manager, Chris Garvey and Green Building Store's Managing Director, Andy Mitchell, will both be attending the event and providing invaluable advice to residents from the surrounding area. 

Efficient Building Solutions CEO, Philip Fellowes-Prynne, said:

“Helping people to understand the ways in which they can improve the energy efficiency and comfort of their homes is at the core of both EBS businesses. Local events like this led by passionate advocates of green energy are a fantastic way to meet and educate people on the things they can do to save energy and money. Both GBR and GBS are headquartered in Yorkshire and we already have many customers from the region, this is a perfect way to help and meet more.”  

Event organiser Penny Stables said,

“As temperatures drop and the costs of heating households and businesses rise, it is important that we all make an effort to conserve energy to keep our bills as low as possible. This free event will give people a range of ideas, tips and measures they can take, such as using renewables and retrofitting homes. Hopefully, they will leave better informed with ideas to keep their energy costs manageable”.
