Calor Gas Signs Vision to Help Rural Households Take Control Of Their Energy Bills
Calors Managing Director, Stephen Rennie, was among the group of CEOs from influential businesses, charities and not-for-profit organisations who came together in London today to launch The Big Energy Vision a new long-term campaign to empower UK households to take control of their energy bills.
The initiative follows research showing energy bills as a top financial concern for households and 63% of people feeling there is nothing they can do about them. As a result of this research, big brands like BQ, Energy Savings Trust, John Lewis and Calor have decided to take action.
From todays’ launch, Calor is committing to stop consumers feeling powerless about their energy bills and making it easier for rural communities to use less and waste less energy by providing them with simple and practical energy efficiency solutions.
Calor offers A-rated energy efficient LPG boilers, boiler repair services, as well as a free online Home Energy Check which shows rural households how and where in their home currently uses energy and ways to reduce this.
Acknowledging that rural energy efficiency challenges are different from urban, last year Calor partnered with the Energy Savings Trust to create a dedicated Home Energy Check specifically aimed at improving the energy efficiency of homes located in rural areas – offering a bespoke report, tailored to the consumers’ home and lifestyles, motivations and budget.
Calor’s Managing Director, Stephen Rennie said: “Be it by making whole-house improvements, buying energy efficient appliances or changing behaviours, we want households to feel there is something they can do to take control. We are delighted to be among many influential businesses to launch the Big Energy Vision and to be able to provide rural households with the support and help they require to help them use less energy and take control of their energy bills”.
The growing partnership committing to The Big Energy Vision includes Kingfisher, John Lewis, Home Retail Group, National Trust, Citizens Advice, Calor, uSwitch, Energy Saving Trust, TrustMark, Energy UK, UK Green Building Council, Global Action Plan, Willmott Dixon, and Groundwork. It is being coordinated by not-for-profit organisations Forum for the Future and Behaviour Change.
