Energy supplier acquires heating services company

Between 1 July 2019 and 31 December 2019, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with Uswitch saved £479 or more.

E.ON has announced that it has acquired a West Midlands-based heating services company.

The energy supplier's multi-million pound deal for CHN Group, which provides energy services to building businesses and local authorities, is part of the company's plan to expand its installation services.

Under the terms of the acquisition, CHN will also be integrated into E.ON's energy services division.

Don Leiper, the managing director of the division, said it was "a great deal" for the company as it looks to expand its business with a rapidly growing company.

He added: "We'll be able to utilise CHN's expertise to roll out the installation of the low carbon solutions, such as solar panels, thermal and ground source heat pumps we're developing as E.ON changes the way we look at energy in the UK."

E.ON's deal with CHN has come after it recently announced a new agreement with Energetix Group to develop and deploy new micro combined heat and power units.
