Eco entrepreneurs reach out to the crowd to expand their energy saving website – have you Sust-it?

An entrepreneurial family have turned a passion for environmental sustainability and reducing their energy bills into a ‘go-to’ website for energy efficient products, Sust-it.

The Sust-it energy saving website came about after the Lammas’ built an energy efficient home in Gloucestershire, back in 2006. When they completed the build, focus turned to their appliances and electricals, which had been in storage for three years. To their surprise they found a lack of understandable information on the energy usage of electricals in any one place. Only after careful research did they discover the vast difference between appliances energy consumption, sometimes hundreds of pounds worth electricity! They thought there would be lots of people also looking to reduce their energy bills – to help them save money and also reduce CO2 emissions too, the Sust-it website was born.

Ross Lammas from Sust-it said, “now is the time to take Sust-it to the next level; I see energy efficiency becoming key to any purchasing decision, especially as smart-meters will make our energy bills more transparent. We’ve built a successful website without any budget and with limited time resource. We’re now looking for funds to step-up our operation and implement our marketing strategies in order to develop Sust-it into a household brand. Crowd funding seems the most democrat way to do this. We’re looking forward to our users investing and becoming part of the Sust-it team.”

They are now looking to funds to expand Sust-it into new markets through crowd funding website CrowdCube. More information on Sust-it’s plans can be found on the CrowdCube and Sust-it websites.

About Sust-it

Sust-it’s energy efficiency website ranks products by their energy usage and CO2 emissions. It does this through its unique calculations of average usage, combined with carefully researched energy usage data published by manufacturers and government agencies. The site is constantly updated and contains a wide range of products from Cars to Chest Freezers.

You can compare electricity tariffs and calculate your CO2 emissions at the same time. The electricity unit rates used to calculate the costs per hour/cycle/year are based on the BIS (Department for Business Innovation & skills) Quarterly Energy Prices.

The Sust-it website has been conceived and developed by TurnRound, after it’s proprietor Ross Lammas, became increasingly frustrated by the difficulty in finding the data on the energy consumption of products, whilst he was building an environmentally sustainable office and home. The site is independent from any manufacturers, retailers or energy companies. And does not receive any funding from any Government agencies, trusts or independent charities.
