Smart meters - Smart Energy GB

Just by choosing to get a smart meter in your home you're helping to upgrade the whole of Britain's energy infrastructure to a 'smarter' energy grid. This is an essential technology upgrade, necessary to move away from old, dirty power stations, towards greener energy creation. It's estimated that smart metering technology will help the environment by saving Britain almost 30 million tonnes of COby 2030.

HEAT programme

Heat Surrey has been launched in Runnymede to help households save money on heating bills, make their homes warmer and more energy efficient which will help to reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty. The Energy Company Obligation scheme (ECO) will help Government to deliver aspirations for all homes to reach EPC Band C by 2035 where practical, cost effective and affordable. Heat Surrey can offer cavity-wall and loft insulation, storage-heater upgrades, new storage-heater installations and wider services, whether you want to insulate your home, upgrade your heating system, or install renewable energy technologies.  Runnymede Borough Council have also secured a share of £1.2 million from National Grid's Warm Homes Fund to install mains gas and new gas central heating systems.  Look out for more details coming with your Council Tax Bill.
