GREEN DEAL GREEN UP Newsletter 2nd Edition 9 July 2011

Posted on: 2011-07-09 14:53:29

Dear Colleagues


We are once again delighted to send you our newsletter ‘GREEN DEAL GREEN UP’ 2nd Edition which captures this week’s concerns on energy prices and which provides links to a number of products and services that can reduce your utility costs.  Please remember that we also offer free no-obligation advice for any businesses who seek opportunities under Green Deal which is to be launched in 2012. 

It has been a very eventful week since our last newsletter. With British Gas causing widespread dismay at their huge price increases, it is a very worrying time for householders and businesses.  Many are struggling to cope in the current economic downturn.   

We specialise in energy performance advice for commercial properties, including air conditioning surveys in line with legislation and mandatory lodgement under our Green Assess (Bolton).

We hope you find this newsletter of interest.  If you have any comments, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time on 07912789186.

Kind Regards

Phyllis Boardman BSc (Hons) MCIH
