Ruffley on green business tour

Monday, 5 March, 2007

David Ruffley MP will be visiting two cutting edge environmentally friendly Suffolk firms on Friday 9 March.

David will be visiting PHP Rainwater Systems at 2.30pm and DEVI Electroheat Ltd at 3pm.

PHP Rainwater Systems are specialists in products designed for new homes which harvest rainwater for use, instead of mains water, in tasks such as flushing the toilet or watering plants and washing the car.

DEVI Electroheat are market leaders in under floor heating products.

Both firms are based on the Brickfields Business Park in Woolpit, Suffolk.

David said:

'I am very much looking forward to my visit to PHP Rainwater Systems and DEVI Electroheat.

'These are two local firms that are leading the way in building greener homes.

'PHP Rainwater Systems install products which allow home owners to recycle rainwater instead of using their mains supply.

'A typical person in the UK will use around 150 litres of water per day. Rainwater is ideally suited for much of this use.

'Fresh, potable water which is provided by local water authorities, is becoming increasingly expensive and will continue to do so as the population grows and the demand increases. PHP provide a fantastic alternative to this through the harvesting of rainwater.

'DEVI Electroheat are specialists in under floor heating which can make heating our homes not only cheaper but also better for the environment.

'This means that the energy loss can be reduced up to 20 percent, which is both economically and environmentally beneficial.

'These two firms are exactly the sort of businesses we should be supporting- they are tackling issues that are at the top of the environmental agenda and the work they do will help to ensure that future generations live in cleaner, greener homes.'
