New partnership between energy broker and air ambulance


Energy broker seals deal with Cornwall Air Ambulance

A Cornish energy broker has seen a new partnership take off with Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust as it works to help drive down the charity’s energy costs.

Total Energy Solutions has joined forces with the emergency rescue charity to help consolidate gas and electricity bills for its seven charity shops across the county.

The partnership deal has seen a new energy contract drawn up with the charity with a considerable percentage saving on costs.

Alastair Carnegie, managing director of Stoke Climsland-based Total Energy Solutions, said: “As a Cornish company we are delighted to be working with Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust and helping such a high profile charity vital to our region.

“As with most charities, the air ambulance is constantly looking to find ways of saving money administratively, so that more money can be ploughed into the crucial, life-saving work it does – and we are delighted to play our part in that.”

John Woodwards, finance officer for Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, said: “We are very pleased to be working with Total Energy Solutions. The primary solution was to reduce our energy costs and in doing so to save more money.

“It is extremely important how our money is spent. All our donations are from individuals or corporations, predominantly within Cornwall, and it is important they know that we are spending their money wisely.

“I think most charities will be looking at the balance between income and spend and try and get them as far apart as possible. We hope to save a considerable amount of money, which can be better used in developing our service to the community.”
