Second NICEIC Live at Epsom Downs
Contractors visiting the ’Evolving role of an electrician’ focused NICEIC Live benefited from topics such as energy saving lighting, microgeneration and the Green Deal.
TV presenter Suzi Perry gave a talk on the influence of gadgets and their increasing demand on energy consumption around the home.
