21/11/12: Electricity North West gives power to the people of Manchester
Electricity North West spent Monday 19th November at Manchester Piccadilly Station to share its investment plans for the future with local people in the region.
The electricity distributor, which connects 2.4 million properties and more than 5 million people in the North West to the power grid, spent the day offering information on its services and talking to commuters about how they think money would be best spent in the future.
As well as having their picture taken with resident Electricity North West mascot Edison, commuters were given the chance to win an iPod shuffle by showing off their cycling skills in a challenge to generate enough energy to power a whole range of consumer goods, including a desktop computer and small television.
Mark Williamson, area manager for Electricity North West, said: “With demand for electricity expected to double by 2050, the plans we make now for future investment are crucial and input from the public is key.
“The Piccadilly Station roadshow has been a great success; commuters responded well to our plans and offered valuable feedback on areas important to them.”
