This is a very worrying time for all of us as we are unsure just how much energy bills are going to increase, or even if our suppliers will still be around in a few months time.
If you are concerned about whether you can afford your energy bills please contact our free and impartial energy advice team. We cover the South Hams and can advise by phone, email and at home visits. You can reach us on 0800 112 3044 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. (Our partners provide the same service across Devon.)
While it may not be possible to find a cheaper tariff anymore, we will check your tariff and ensure you are getting all the support available from your supplier, in some cases this also includes financial support. Crucially, we can also help you apply for insulation grants to reduce the amount of energy you need to keep your home warm, and through the LEAP programme we are able to fit small energy saving measures such as LED bulbs, draught proofing, power down gadgets and hot water tank jackets – all for free.
In crisis situations there is additional support, this can happen to anyone, so please if you are concerned we urge you to contact us because we are here to help.
Our advisors are trained to help you understand tricky heating controls and set them up most efficiently for you, and can advocate on your behalf to you landlord if your home needs heating or insulation improvements.
We work closely with South Hams District Council and our service is 100% grant funded so is free for you. All our advice team are qualified and DBS checked.
We’re a not-for-profit community organisation, our mission is to help people save energy and stay warm and healthy in their homes.
