5th March 2015
Belcoo based group Lakeland Community Care have been awarded Power NI’s energy saving champions after becoming the first of six local groups to complete Power NI’s energy saving competition, Quest.
Quest involved six community groups from across Northern Ireland competing in a ten step energy saving challenge, in the hope of winning £10,000 to invest in a renewable technology for their area. Launched in 2013, the aim of Quest was to increase energy awareness across Northern Ireland, educate local communities on ways to save energy and money while reducing their heating and electricity costs. The five remaining finalists were Castlewellan Futures, Claudy Rural Development, Cloughmills Community Action Team, Focus on Family (Coleraine) and Newcastle Yacht Club.
Power NI project coordinator, Neil Coleman said; ‘’we are extremely pleased with the amount of dedication and hard work each of the six groups put into Quest. Everybody involved should be very proud of what they have achieved and the difference they’ve made in their community.
“A huge congratulations to Lakeland Community Care ( LCC) who have been worthy winners of the competition and fantastic ambassadors for the challenge, having made such a tangible benefit to their local area through each of the steps.’’
Throughout the competition the groups took part in a range of energy saving initiatives including; completing 100 online Home Energy Checks which provided a personalised report on how each home could become more energy efficient and sourcing and 20 free insulation grants through the NISEP( need to say what NISEP is in the notes) funded scheme. The target of 30 discounted boiler services helped each participant save at least 10% on their energy bills with an efficient boiler. Group members also had the opportunity to take part in an energy saving training workshop to learn about the benefits of energy efficiency which they can use in their everyday lives, at home and at work.
As the competition advanced, LCC was quick to take the lead. They were the first group to make it to the ninth step where they earned a £1,000 energy saving grant for a local community building. Their nominated organisation was St. Patrick’s Primary School in Derrygonnelly who benefitted from new LED lighting.
Since 2013, Quest has helped make a significant impact in all the communities involved. Over the course of the years there have been 1,500 participants who are now equipped with the knowledge to help them save money and energy in the future. Almost £80,000 worth of funding was invested ensuring these communities were able to get the most out of Quest and the opportunities it provided.
Adrian McGurn from LCC added “We are delighted to have won Power NI’s Quest challenge, it’s been a great experience for us and the £10,000 prize is going to be a massive boost to our organisation which helps bring care and support to the wider Fermanagh area.”
Lakeland community care will be investing their £10,000 Quest prize fund on a geothermal heating system in their new community health centre.
