Over 400 members of the public were the first to visit the South West Energy Centre, at White Rock, Long Road, Paignton during its Launch Day recently.
The Centre, which is part of SouthDevonCollege, is now open for individuals, community representatives and businesses to drop in, phone or email the Centre to find out more from experts about anything energy related. Those interested can contact the Centre by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or ringing 01803 540725.
The Launch Day attracted people who were interested in both the full time Enviroskills courses and the short courses available at the Centre such as the Green Deal Advisor course and the Smart Metering course.
Paddy McNevin, the Centre Director, said: “It was great to see some many people from the community coming along and helping us celebrate the launch of the South West Energy Centre at SouthDevonCollege. We can now start the hard work of helping businesses to grow and create jobs in the South West.
“The centre will also be a place for consumers to visit and get valuable advice and guidance on issues such as energy bills, low carbon technologies and tackling fuel poverty.”
