Big Energy Saving Network
The successful application for funds was made in partnership with fellow ForViva group member Villages Housing. Together, City West and Villages aim to support a minimum of 300 households across Salford, Knowsley and Oldham.
The scheme aims to support customers to:
- Switch energy supplier and/or tariff
- Apply for the Warm Home Discount Scheme (for eligible households this will mean £140 towards their electricity costs). Customers can request support by filling out the form on this page - you can bring it to the office or email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Register vulnerable households on suppliers' Priority Register (a free register that supports vulnerable residents when there is a major power outage)
Energy Champion Jane Roberts said: “Reducing energy costs by switching supplier has never been as easy as it is today. Last year, many customers saved over £200 per year and one household saved over £600! If you have not switched in the last 12 months or are on a standard tariff you could be paying too much.”
Jane continued, “households who are on a prepayment meter may also be able to reduce their energy costs - we're holding energy sessions in communities over the coming weeks, so come along and take the Energy Challenge!”
"We also helped residents to claim a total of £11,000 through the Warm Home Discount Scheme last year (and £80,000 over the last 4 years). Could you be missing out?"
