WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY ENERGY EFFICIENCY?
Being energy efficient doesn’t always mean doing more with less, sometimes it’s doing more with what you have. For us it’s about maintaining quality of life whilst reducing energy consumption where possible.
Energy efficiency is using energy wisely and economically to sustain everyday life, live comfortably and support well-being.
