Rural homeowners advised to prepare early for winter heating

Case Studies

Rural homeowners using off-grid energy such as LPG and renewables liquid fuels are being advised to avoid the rush and prepare for winter heating now.

Following the very hot conditions over the Summer, the country is bracing itself for equally extreme weather conditions over the Winter and Liquid Gas UK, the trade association for the LPG and renewable liquid gas industry, is urging rural homeowners to take precautionary steps to avoid any problems once the cold weather sets in.

The CEO of Liquid Gas UK, Mr George Webb (pictured left) explained: 

“We recognise that this year in particular, news about global gas supplies and the cost of energy is causing concern for homeowners. As such, industry is ramping up its communication to customers much earlier than in previous years, to support them during this period.”

“We’re advising rural homeowners to check their LPG tank level now, and speak to their supplier about optimum order times, and the options available for deliveries this winter being made by connecting to an automatic ordering system from their supplier,” he says.

“Nearly £117m has been invested in strategic and vessel storage and infrastructure over the past 12 months, and a further £130.5m is planned to be invested into this area over the next 12 months, which will help with increased demand over winter. £12.5m has also been invested in industry’s fleet, which will help in maintaining deliveries to homes,” he added.
