We also run a home visit service for those that are house-bound where we offer support tailored to the individual’s needs.

We offer assisted action including:

  • Use of heating system and various heating appliances

Community Presence

Taking place at venues at the heart of the community, we offer free advice at our Switching Clinics designed to utilise our knowledge and experience to inform homeowners’ decisions. Residents are invited to bring their annual statements to help us to provide accurate impartial guidance and strategic direction to ensure that they are receiving the most suitable energy service at the lowest price. We also operate pop-up stands at local supermarkets where we invite the public to ask us questions about energy usage, while promoting simple changes to energy consumption that result in big savings.
