Part of plumbing and heating merchant Plumbase, the launch of Ecobase’s showroom will be followed by two further stores opening in Bognor Regis and Haslemere, Surrey, prior to a full national rollout.
Ecobase says it offers impartial advice on technologies from high efficiency boilers, radiators, solar thermal and PV through to biomass. It also provides training and education in addition to its wide product portfolio.
“We take our commitment to energy saving very seriously and are proud to introduce Ecobase as a ‘one-stop shop’, providing solutions, advice, education and training for the installer and consumer,” said Plumbase managing director, Andy Gribble. “This will also be a useful resource for consumers to learn more when looking to make energy savings within their home or business.
“The Ecobase team gives clear and impartial advice to installers, allowing them to utilise the vast commercial opportunities arising from the government’s upcoming energy saving schemes,” he added. “By 2020, 15 per cent of energy consumption must come from renewable sources: a target set by the government. Together with the professional installer we aim to educate the consumer to increase the spread of renewable solutions and assist in meeting this target. We hope that this new dawn in energy efficiencies will propel Britain into a new era where energy saving and renewable technologies become mainstream in every build.”
In support of the brand’s launch, Ecobase will exhibit at the Renewables Roadshow during September and October, visiting six locations throughout the UK, starting at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, West Midlands, on 13 September 2012.
