LMC partners with Green Rose CIC to provide free Energy Advice Pop-Up Shops in the district

Posted: 06.09.2022

With energy costs rising and the colder weather fast approaching, many local families are becoming increasingly concerned about their household bills. To help support our community, LMC and Green Rose CIC are partnering to provide FREE energy advice ‘pop-up’ shops in Lancaster & Morecambe, throughout September & October. 

The shops, which will be based in the Arndale Centre in Morecambe and Market Gate in Lancaster, will include examples of energy saving technologies for the home as well as information and advice to help bring your household bills down. 

Georgina Sommerville, Director of Green Rose says:

Local residents will be able to drop in while they’re doing their shopping and find answers to their energy questions.  They can browse the displays or speak to our staff and volunteers.  We are also running free workshops to learn more about energy saving home improvements and helpful habits that save on bills. Eligible households can also arrange an in-depth appointment for free 1-2-1 advice. 

Maggie Cawthorn, Sustainability Project Lead at Lancaster and Morecambe College adds:

There are some simple things you can do to reduce how much energy you use and to help reduce your bill. This, in turn, also helps to reduce global warming.  By popping in to see us you can get lots of suggestions to do both!

There will also be the opportunity learn about energy-saving, green technologies, such as heat pumps and solar panels and staff will be able to advise on grants and benefits available to those struggling with high bills.

  • The Morecambe shop will be open from 14 September–15 October

  • the Lancaster shop will be open 18–29 October.
