Ridgewater Energy Ltd
Ridgewater Energy is owned and run by Peter Bywater and Alan Plumridge who have been working together in the energy efficiency field since 1997, when they worked on the Home Energy Efficiency Scheme (HEES) as assessors. From 2000 they both joined Energy Action Grants Agency (EAGA) to work on the Warmfront Grant Scheme. Both of them were promoted to Assessing Team Leaders whilst at EAGA.
In 2005 they left EAGA. Alan set up his own business called AJP Surveying, and carried out surveying for Warmfront and local insulation projects. He also managed a team of gas engineers and is a qualified DipDEA (Domestic Energy Assessor) and GDA (Green Deal Assessor).
Peter then worked at Dorset Energy Advice Centre from 2005-2015, whilst there he ran several Landlord Insulation Projects, including the award winning Bournemouth Landlord Project which worked with over 1000 landlords and assisted 13,000 tenants.
The scheme was also taken up in Southampton, Poole, Weymouth, Exeter and then across Dorset. There were over 50 projects across the energy and sustainability spectrum which were delivered at this time.
Peter (Senior Project Manager) and Alan (Operations Manager) both worked at Wessex Energy from 2015 until January 2017, during which time they worked on various health related energy efficiency projects.
Now Peter and Alan are planning to take Ridgewater Energy forward to a bright future and build on their experience to benefit all of their clients.
