The Energy Smart Fund in association with Massy Stores (Barbados) Ltd, trading under the name of Dacosta Mannings Retail Ltd., officially launched The Consumer Pilot Facility in August 2013. This project, designed to sensitise consumers of the need to purchase energy efficient consumer goods, allowed customers to receive a cash rebate of 20% up to a maximum of $500.00 and still benefit from the standard retail arrangements of repaying in instalments.
There has been a rapid expansion in the range of items carried under the Energy Smart programme at Massy Stores since the launch, two years ago. Initially, the programme was focused primarily on refrigerators and washing machines. However, as Jared Wright, Commercial Director, stated, “There has been an overwhelmingly positive response to the programme from both our customers and our suppliers. We continue to gain access to an increased portfolio of energy-rated products, through dedicated suppliers who share our perspective.”
“Being a key partner within the Energy Smart Programme is a delight for Massy Stores since it allows us the opportunity to execute our purpose of ‘Creating Value and Transforming Life’ in a unique way that not only benefits our customers, but is also healthier and more responsible for our environment,” he added.
Enterprise Growth Fund Ltd. is pleased to be associated with this project.
