I thought that Aidan managed the whole process brilliantly. The Green BELLE grant enabled us to replace boilers that were over 40 years old with modern replacements which are already leading to lower gas bills.

Barkby Properties Limited

I found the whole process very easy. Nicola addressed all of our queries and is very helpful and friendly. It was all handled quickly and efficiently.

With regard to the process that we went through concerning our energy reduction enquiry to the Leicester City Council, the site visit was made in a prompt and efficient manner both from the Council and the manufacturer selected, (concerning the layout). We were able to remove certain light fittings that were initially installed many years ago that quite simply were not required and, after consultation, replace with fewer low output fittings without any reduction of working light. Accordingly, our costs have been reduced considerably, and the payback in comparison against the original lights and the expenditure has been achieved within a matter of months. The quality of the lights cannot be questioned as per the copy photographs.

It was very pleasing to be able to get some assistance with an environmentally friendly project. We would definitely recommend this to any other business. The new lights have made a huge difference to our work environment.

Mark CharlesManaging DirectorThe Packaging Company (Midlands) Limited

The process ran very smoothly, and we received good service from the Project Officers at all stages of the work. We received some very interesting and useful information as a result of the work, and will be taking forward some of the suggestions for improvement.

John MichaelThermal Exchange Limited

I was delighted to hear that the scheme existed and even more so when it appeared we would qualify for it. Our Project Officer was very helpful and knowledgeable and made the process very simple.

Matt SearsonDoor 6 Limited

As a Director of a small family business, to receive a grant towards our new boiler has been extremely helpful and hopefully will continue to be by saving us money in the future on hopefully reduced energy bills.
