Simple Energy Initiative Will Keep Costs Down
Cotswold District Council’s Green Champions are helping the Council to lower its carbon footprint and energy costs with a simple energy initiative supported by Severn Wye Energy Agency (SWEA).
By installing a simple PowerDown plug created by E.On at each computer station, the Council can save £2,500 and 19 tonnes of CO2 a year.
This device makes it effortless to save energy from your computer and accessories when not in use – both at home and in the office – reducing energy consumption and fire risk.
SWEA were able to provide these devices to the Council free of charge, meaning the savings will be felt straight away.
Kirsty Merritt, Cotswold District Council’s Climate Change and Carbon Management Officer, said: “These PowerDown plugs are a really simple initiative that will make a significant contribution to the Council’s 25% by 2015 carbon reduction target.
” I would like to thank Severn Wye Energy Agency for helping us along the way.”
