We were featured in the Exchange section of the May edition of Irish Tatler, when they featured members of Network Ireland, Kildare Branch.

We held a competition recently during the National Enterprise Week which was run by the Bank Of Ireland. We are delighted to announce the winner of this competition is I.McCrean of Castleknock, the prize of a €50 voucher for the Blanchardstown Centre is on its way to you.

The new scheme for the Electrical Regulatory Safety ensures that all electrical installations are carried out by competent electrical contractors.  This scheme is being heavily advertised at present and is informing the general public of the importance of using a Registered Electrical Contractor and why it is important to always get a Completion Certificate.

Only registered contractors will be permited to use the Safe Electric logo,  as members of RECI we are therefore allowed use this logo on both our paperwork along with our website.

The Safe Electric website has further information about the scheme.

We are now an approved Smarthomes installer and will be laucnhing this serivce at Johnstown Business Fair and the Johnstown Business Centre.

So if you are attending and would like to dicsuss anything in relation to electrical installations, intruder alarm installations or serivce, or if you are planning to carry out building works - we would be happy to discuss this with you. Feel free to bring along copies of drawings or plans to get some advice.

We are delighted to announce that we recently completed the training course run by Smarthomes, to become an Approved Installer of the Smarthomes range of products.  We spent four days at the Smarthomes offices in Dundalk getting familiar with both the equipment and the packages available to both the homeowner and the developer alike.

We will be happy to discuss any queries in relation to the range of products.

I mentioned yesterday that we are now certified to install intruder alarm systems and other electronic security systems, like access control systems and CCTV systems, but very few people are aware of the fact that this area is now covered by legislation.  The Minister who enacted this was Mr. McDowell, it was at the time brought in to cover and licence the manned security area, door men and the like.  It was then extended to cover the electronic area of the industry, regardless of the fact that electricians were trained in the installation and maintenance of the equipment there are also consequences for the client. 

The client who has some electronic security systems installed is ment to check that the supplier/ installer is licenced to carry out this work.  The downside is that the client is at risk of a fine and/or prosecution if they have not checked this regardless of the fact that it is not widely publicized.  So now that you are aware of the fact…… pass it on.  If you know of someone who is getting an alarm system installed let them know to ask the installer if they are licenced and ask to see proof.

This is the next big thing on the energy saving front for the retail sector, office, educational instituations and any premises with large energy use.
CHP is for combined heat and power and has already been rolled out. There is a grant available and the balance is tax-deductable. The unit has an average payback of between 3 and 5 years. This initiative is supported by the SEI, Sustainable Energy Ireland.

Energy Show 2009 to demonstrate Ireland’s Green Economy in action

Ireland’s largest ever trade fair for the sustainable energy sector will see almost 150 Irish and international exhibitors  and over 4000 Irish energy professionals descend on Dublin’s RDS on April 29th and 30th. The annual two day trade exhibition is organised by Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI) for the purposes of encouraging trade and networking between businesses and professionals in the sector as well as the sharing of expertise, new thinking and innovation in the areas of energy efficiency and renewable technologies. According to Professor J Owen Lewis, Chief Executive SEI; “The show is a very tangible demonstration of Ireland’s ‘Green Economy’ in action.”

We are planning on attending this event and finding some innovative ideas and technologies which we can put to use for our clients at this show.”

Originally held in 1996, the Energy Show has grown significantly in recent years and is now firmly established as the national showcase for the sustainable energy sector. The event attracts a diverse array of exhibitors and visitors, not just from Ireland but from across Europe. While visitors attending the show come from a wide ranging background, the event is specifically aimed at businesses or individuals with a professional interest in or responsibility for energy use.

The Energy Show will showcase the most up to date technologies as well as providing professional advice and guidance from qualified persons operating at the forefront of areas such as Low Carbon Design, Energy Management, Combined Heat and Power (CHP), Electric Vehicles, PV and Solar Thermal Energy. This will make it a unique and invaluable source of information for anyone with an interest or involvement in the area of sustainable energy.  This will prove to be a valuable event for our business and that of our customers.

The awards ceremony took place with a great trunout of the winners and runners-up on the night, it was a great evening, thanks to all the hard work put in by the organisers/promotors. While we have many items and systems checked and serviced like our heating boiler or intruder alarm system, we very rarely have a vital part of our home given an annual inspection.
