A WISBECH energy firm is helping teenagers get more energy aware.

Foster Renewable Energies (FRE) have joined with Freebridge Community Housing and the Discovery Centre to give 14 and 15 year-olds in the area the chance to learn about both using and saving energy

FRE has donated 12 energy meters and recording charts that have enabled those taking part to monitor household energy consumption over the first week.

They will be able to see exactly how much energy they are using and how much they can save.

Jeremy Pallant, renewable energies manager, said: “On behalf of Fosters, we are pleased to be able to take part in a project which involves helping younger people monitor energy use with a view to reducing fuel bills and ultimately carbon emissions.”
