Logicor signs a deal with a major Australian distributor to exclusively distribute the Australian version of its Green Plug products into Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
The products for this market will be made outside of Australia at one of Logicor's existing manufacturers but no final decision has been taken as to which one will be tasked with making that product.
The deal represents a very expedient way for Logicor to move into the Australian market in a major way with a very experienced company that specialises in this field. There is a further four to six months of work to be done in preparation for the launch of the Australian products but so far 2012 is turning out to be quite a year.
Logicor and the Green Plug featured in a recent debate in the House of Commons on Environmental Protection and Green Growth. Mary Creagh said:
"I could not agree more with my hon. Friend.
The full script can be read here.
Logicor recently ran a mini trial to see if consumers were given the choice of Green Plugs for their homes totally free of charge how many they would have and what effect that would have on their electricity consumption. The person who received the best energy saving results achieved 51% energy savings during the trial. He is seen here pictured receiving his winning cheque for £354.80.
The Results of the trial can be seen here:
Total percentage saving on the whole trial33.50%
Average household saving38.33%
Best saving achieved51%
It is clear that if Green Plugs were deployed to more homes and on more appliances then greater energy savings could be achieved. When you consider that all the Green Plug does is it turns electric appliances off that you accidentally leave on and unattended the energy saving is substantial.
The trial reinforces Logicor's belief that the quickest way to achieve the highest energy saving in today's households is to simply turn off appliances, and the Green Plug is a great way to take care of that process without having to think about it.
