Fantastic Energy Advice Available at Retford Market

The Fantastic Home, a mobile interactive experience which helps people make their homes warmer and cheaper to heat, will be visiting the Market Square, Retford on Thursday 29 September. Experienced and friendly advisors from the charity Marches Energy Agency (MEA) will be available alongside staff from Bassetlaw District Council to provide advice on making your home more energy efficient, keeping your energy bills low and switching energy supplier ahead of winter.

As well as advice, there will be a number of fun ways to get involved in the exhibition. Visitors will be able to find out what household appliances they could power with their legs on the Watt Bike, a Thermal Image camera will allow people to see what heat they loose from their body, and there will be free energy saving items to take home.

Caroline Harmon, Project Manager at MEA, said: ‘We’re delighted to be able to visit Retford and offer people the chance to find out how to make their homes warmer and cosier to heat as the weather gets colder. We’d encourage everyone to come and find out how to make their homes fantastic!’

Cllr Julie Leigh, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods at Bassetlaw District Council, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for residents to learn how they can lower their household bills, be more energy efficient and have a bit of fun riding the energy bike and finding out how much electricity you can generate. I hope to see you there.”


The Fantastic Home Bus will be visiting Worksop on 7 October, more details will be available nearer the time.
