Power NI partners South Eastern Trust’s Energy Awareness Campaign

Monday, July 09, 2012

Staff across the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust are being encouraged to focus on energy saving as part of the Trust’s new Energy Awareness Campaign for 2012.

The campaign, in association with Power NI, could pave the way for over £1m to be invested in front line patient care. Power NI joined the South Eastern Trust for the campaign’s launch at the Ulster Hospital on 21st June, followed by a week of roadshows in the Downe, Ulster, Lagan Valley, Ards and Bangor Hospitals.

Power NI and Trust representatives were on hand at each roadshow to give energy saving advice for both the home and the workplace and Power NI provided the opportunity for staff to win a free boiler service.

Eddie Kerr, Specialist Engineering & Energy Manager for the South Eastern Trust commented: “We’re delighted to have Northern Ireland’s leading energy provider as a partner in our Energy Awareness Campaign.

We are reducing our carbon footprint by three per cent each year and everything we save can go back into the healthcare spend.”

Power NI’s Wilma Stewart added: “It’s a pleasure to be invited to partner the Trust’s Energy Awareness Campaign and we look forward to helping staff not only save energy in their workplace but also reducing their own energy bills at home”.
