Smart meter loan scheme

As a result of a successful funding bid, Friends of Thringstone are now able to offer residents of the village the opportunity to borrow a Smart Meter.

These are a very useful addition to the home as they provide you with up to the second information on the amount of electricity you are using in terms of both power and cost, and thus allow you to look at making savings. You can see in real time the benefits of turning off electrical devices at home. Whether it's turning off at the plug rather than just using standby, or simply turning off a light, the smart meter shows you the cash impact of changing your habits and behaviours which could amount to savings of hundreds of pounds per year.

Friends of Thringstone have 7 Owl meters, which are available through a Loan Scheme, linking to NWLDC's sustainability team.

If you are interested in borrowing one of these meters, please contact either:
Pam Porter on
01530 469474

01530 223434
to discuss this.
