Fifteen residents in Hallam St, Balsall Heath, have today been presented with free electricity monitors by EDF Energy. The company is sponsoring the upcoming Birmingham Half Marathon, which will run down their street on 24th October. A video will appear on the website, where more details of the Run can be found.

The ‘Ecomanager‘ is new, in that it both measures the electricity use of a number of applicances in your home and allows you to switch them all off, preventing waste from things being left on ‘standby’. Studies have found that people can save 15% of their electricity just by being aware of how much things are using. On sale from EDF
Balsall Heath Is Our Planet will be offering the residents help and energy advice sessions.
