Lichfield District Council is working to help
businesses to cut their energy costs
Lichfield District Council is working in partnership with Marches Energy
Agency on a Business Energy Smart initiative.
The scheme aims to help local businesses to reduce the amount of fuel they waste, so they can cut their energy bills and increase their profitability.
Small and medium sized businesses across Lichfield District are being
offered a range of services for free. These include:
A telephone support line for businesses with energy
awareness tips, advice on reducing consumption, negotiation of business tariffs
A bespoke report for local businesses setting out
potential actions and savings (following telephone support).
A Business Energy Smart roadshow to visit local
business parks, offering energy experts, advice and resources.
An LED bulk-buy special offer for Lichfield District
Energy awareness pitches at local business gatherings.
Five local businesses will also be selected to receive a visit from an
energy expert who will offer a free energy audit to assess where money can be
Pritchard, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Health and
Environmental Protection, said: “We know that many local businesses are
struggling with the pressure of rising energy prices, which is why we are
working in partnership with Marches Energy Agency to offer then help in how
they can make their premises more energy efficient. By calling our Warmer
Homes, Greener District energy advice line, businesses can access expert help
and advice that should help to cut their costs while helping the environment.”
If you and your business would like to start saving on your energy bills
this winter, call the telephone support line on 0800 677 1543.

With fuel prices rising and the coldest months of the year looming, we are looking for volunteers to help give advice to householders on energy efficiency, grants, fuel switching and collective switching, and the forthcoming “Green Deal”
We run a number of affordable warmth helplines, a mobile exhibition service and stand at public venues such as GP surgeries and schools.
Volunteers need to be confident and have a pleasant manner on the telephone or face to face, be able to accurately record names and addresses and collect other information, give advice and signpost people to other services, and have an interest in energy saving.
In return, we offer a pleasant working
environment in our exemplary energy efficient offices overlooking the river
People volunteer for a number of reasons – out of interest for the subject, to give something back to their local community, to increase their own skills and gain experience. A number of volunteers do go on to find paid work in a similar field.
Whatever your reason, if you are interested
