Victor contacted us because his electricity bills were very high. We visited him in his home, offered energy saving advice for his circumstances and helped him switch to a better supplier, saving over £400 per year.
I can't believe how much money I am saving just from switching supplier. I'd never done it before, I don't like computers but you were patient and showed me how to choose the best supplier and tariff for me..
We also gave him an energy monitor to allow him to see how and when he uses the most energy. Victor's bills are now far more manageable as he has made small changes that haven’t affected his comfort.
We helped Maureen, 78, switch energy suppliers. This saved her £428 a year on her energy bill.
Our advisors also put her in contact with a befriending team so she now enjoys playing bridge twice a week. She tell us she is now feeling much more positive than she had been, since losing her husband two years ago.
Peter and Sarah had a hard to heat home. It was uncomfortable to live in and staying warm was costing them over £120 a month.
We can't tell you what a difference this has made, now I can sit in the lounge without being wrapped in a blanket and wearing a wool hat!
We helped them to find a scheme to install free loft and floor insulation. Now they find it much easier to stay warm and without worrying about the bill.
David called to ask for support with his tenant, who was ill and vulnerable to the cold. He wanted to upgrade the heating system from fixed electric heaters.
It's fantastic to know that you are there to help, I was so worried about my tenant but I couldn't afford a whole new system. You made it easy from start to finish.
We helped David to secure part funding for a gas connection and a new central heating system.
Hosting a community-owned solar array on its roof, this local primary school benefits from management-free solar, low cost energy and a fantastic education tool for students.
“For us now leading the way as a school has made a huge impact, the Eco Team were very excited when the solar panels were put in place.”
The children are able to monitor how much energy their roof is generating, see the impacts of varying weather conditions and see how much carbon they have saved, plus their local community own it!
