The Home Energy Team prize draw

Encouraging energy advice calls during the summer

30 July 2014

Perhaps unsurprisingly, our Home Energy Team's advice line gets lots of calls during the winter months, when people are cold. But the summer is the best time to sort out things like upgrading to a new boiler or getting insulation installed, so that your home is ready for the next winter. Nobody wants to be replacing their broken boiler while it's snowing outside.

This long, sunny summer has also got people thinking about solar power. We can make referrals to companies who can install solar PV and solar water heating and access the feed-in tariff and the Renewable Heat Incentive.

So, to encourage more calls during the next few months, and to reach a wider range of local residents, we have set up a prize draw with some local partner businesses. We're entering every advice line caller into the free monthly prize draw, and the partners who provide the prizes are promoting the advice line and the offer through their own mailing lists. We hope this approach will inspire more summer callers!

August's prize

The prize for the month of August is an annual pass for a family of four to At-Bristol, one of the UK’s biggest and most exciting interactive science centres. Sustainability is one of At-Bristol’s 10 core values, plus it has been listed one of VisitBritain's top 10 family attractions, so we’re delighted to be working with them.
