Eon encourages groups to adopt energy-saving measures

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.

Gas and electricity supplier Eon has launched a sustainable fund which aims to provide community groups across the UK with grants and advise to help with energy-saving projects.

New applications for a portion of the cash are being taken until June 12th and the company states it has already seen "huge interest" from green-thinking groups who want to make their facilities more environmentally-friendly.

Eon's community relations officer Tony Jenkin Jones said that previous projects which have benefited from the funding include a solar-panelled water heater for a café at a monkey sanctuary and a swimming pool in Scotland which uses waste heat from a local distillery to warm its water.

"If you have a sustainable improvement project in mind which is educational and beneficial to all local groups, and you can show energy efficient steps that you've already taken, then get involved now and find out how we can help your green dream come true," he added.

Recent research by another gas and electricity provider npower highlighted that 43 per cent of businesses in the UK are actively on the look-out for methods to improve their energy efficiency.
