A Project Officer trained in Energy Awareness is visiting households in the central ward of Peterborough, providing information and advice to encourage them to develop energy-saving behaviour and make energy efficient home improvements when needed. The project also does home visits where they aim to address a full scale of issues that the fuel poor households are facing.
Each household visited during the project receive between 1-2 hours of free, personalised energy advice on a range of topics including:
- Energy saving measures such as insulation;
- Changing energy tariff or supplier;
- How to set heating controls to maximise warmth and efficiency;
- Help to access financial support through Green Deal or other sources.
Referrals to relevant schemes such as the city council’s Repair Boiler and Central Heating Servicing Scheme or Heataborough, a DECC funded providing substantial funding towards exterior wall insulation.Back to projects
