Companies across East Durham are being reminded that an energy saving scheme is still open for business despite the coronavirus lockdown.

BEEP, or the Business Energy Efficiency Programme, is available to businesses which are keen to reduce their energy overheads.

Although audits are usually carried out face to face, other forms of support are still available by the BEEP team.

They include a small grant available for energy efficient purchases, which some businesses may still be in a position to take advantage of.
