We are supporting the national event, Fuel Poverty Awareness Day on Friday 29th November 2019, to raise awareness of the plight of those struggling to heat their homes affordably. The initiative is co-ordinated by the fuel poverty charity National Energy Action (NEA).
To help mark the day and give advice and support to residents in time for winter, we are holding a special Energy Advice Surgery. Please join us on Friday 29th November 2019, 10am until 3pm at our Market Street One Stop Shop, 29 Market Street, WV1 3AG.
There are also a number of actions tenants and residents can take to help keep their homes warmer and their energy bills down:
- Did you know that you can book a Home Energy Visit for your home to ensure you have the adequate measures for keeping your house warm such as heating, loft and wall insulation. For further information contact the Energy & Climate Change Team on 01902 556789.
- Checking if you are on the lowest tariff available with your current provider or visiting a price comparison site to see the latest deals.
- Read your meter regularly and update your energy supplier to avoid estimated bills – this also enables you to keep track of what you are using and make changes if necessary.
For further information and advice, contact the Energy & Climate Change Team on 01902 556789.
Shaun Aldis, Chief Executive of Wolverhampton Homes, said:
Fuel Poverty Awareness Day is a staple day in our community calendar, as we recognise the issue of fuel poverty, not just to our residents but also to the wider community, which is why we welcome anyone to attend our energy advice surgeries. We’re committed to ensuring residents have the knowledge and tools to keep their homes warm and keep their energy bills down. We’re proud to work alongside NEA to tackle this very real issue.
Alvina Ali, Energy & Climate Change Officer for Wolverhampton Homes, said:
At this time of year, energy bills are a big expense for people. We also understand that you may worry about the warmth of your home this cold season. Please come along to our event to help combat fuel poverty, promote measures to cut bills and make sure no one is paying more than they need to. Help get your home ready for winter with us.
