Chop-Cloc wins the Rushlight Energy Environmental Award
Our retrofit device designed to reduce home heating bills has won the Rushlight Energy Environmental Award 2014-15. The award recognises the most significant achievement in reducing the impact on the environment from energy generation or end use.
The Chop-Cloc costs just £69.99 and pays back in less than 12 months. It works with any water based heating system to insert a 15 to 45 minute ‘off’ period in each hour that the heating is on. This makes no difference to comfort but saves households an average of 16% on their heating bills, with some customers saving as much as 30%.
“The role that Chop-Cloc can provide in saving energy, reducing carbon footprints and making heating affordable is beginning to be properly understood,” explains CEO, Mark Kerray. “We’ve had a great year with an increasing number of strategic partnerships seeing Chop-Clocs fitted up and down the country.”
High energy bills are causing suffering for millions of families across Britain, especially those on low incomes. On Sunday, 80 charities, businesses and unions called on government to end the ‘scandal’ of winter deaths by prioritising home energy efficiency. As we brace ourselves against yet another cold snap, the need for affordable, quick-fit solutions that help manage bills is clear.
The Chop-Cloc is receiving increasing recognition as a break-through invention, shortlisted for the Ashden, Greenbuild and Energy Efficiency & Renewables Awards in the last year alone. Chop-Cloc was also Highly Commended in the Innovation of the Year category at the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards in June 2014.
