KIDDERMINSTER-based solar energy specialist Eco2Solar is to put renewable energy in the spotlight.

The company’s first Making Sense of Green Energy event takes place in Worcester on Friday, October 19.

The free public awareness event aims to educate homeowners on the benefits of energy efficiency in the home, how to generate green energy and outline the latest developments on the Government’s Feed-In Tariffs and new Green Deal.

It will be particularly relevant for homeowners looking to reduce energy bills and generate their own electricity by investing in the latest energy-efficiency and renewable energy solutions.

Running from 11am until 4.30pm at Worcester’s Guildhall, it is being supported by the Hoo Farm Industrial Estate firm’s industry partners, Festival Housing, Sanctuary Housing and Green Puzzle Energy.

Paul Hutchens, managing director of Eco2Solar, said: “Climate change is an issue that affects us all and there has never been a better time for homeowners to reduce their carbon footprint and reap the rewards of investing in renewable energy.

“Importantly, we will be going behind the issues to answer questions on key topics, like the Government’s new Green Deal and how it will help homeowners and businesses improve the energy efficiency of their properties.”

David Jullien, chief executive of Act on Energy, said: “We are delighted to join forces with Eco2Solar and offer free impartial advice to residents on the benefits of generating green energy in the home.”

He added: “We will be showing visitors how to make homes use less energy, lower fuel bills, be more comfortable and have less of an adverse impact on the environment.”

Act on Energy is a not-for-profit organisation and a registered environmental charity set up to promote energy conservation by providing free and impartial advice to householders and small businesses in Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Coventry and surrounding areas.
