Bath & North East Somerset Council’s Energy at Home Advice Service, which provides free advice on all things energy related to local residents, has won a regional industry award.
The service, which provides residents with free, expert advice, has been recognised by the Association of Local Energy Officers (ALEO) as its 2018 South West Award Winner.
At a ceremony in Birmingham on Wednesday 28th November ALEO judges praised the service for its work promoting domestic energy conservation, tackling fuel poverty and climate change.
Councillor Mark Shelford, cabinet member for Transport and Environment said: “This is a fantastic endorsement of the work carried out by our Energy at Home Team.
“Over the years hundreds of residents have benefitted from the advice and help given. In the long term installing energy saving measures not only saves you money but helps the environment too.”
