Green Energy Switch delivers the LEAP scheme in partnership with Peterborough City Council, South Cambridgeshire Council and Rutland County Council to bring free energy support to residents struggling with fuel poverty.
Over the last year, Green Energy Switch has supported over 400 residents with free energy-saving advice, energy products and home visits. In total £497,816.28 has been saved on energy bills, over 3,400 energy products installed and 1463.5 tonnes of carbon saved.
Sarah Chatterton, Head of Operations at Green Energy Switch, said:
“What was achieved during the last LEAP season was absolutely amazing for local residents in Peterborough, Rutland and Cambridgeshire. Not only is it helping them to reduce their energy bills and have a better quality of life; it is also reducing their impact on the environment”
The funding to help make this possible is from the LEAP scheme, which is a free service that is helping people keep warm and reduce their energy bills without costing them any money.
Lorraine Gumbs, LEAP Project Manager, said:
“We are delighted to be partnering with Green Energy Switch to offer free energy and money saving advice and support to fuel poor households in the Peterborough, Rutland and Cambridgeshire region. In the many areas across Britain where LEAP is already providing deep energy efficiency interventions, residents have been very positive about the help they have received. In many cases, the support has been life-changing.”
Green Energy Switch has also worked closely alongside Peterborough City Council, South Cambridgeshire Council and Rutland County Council, to make sure vulnerable residents have access to free support.
Currently, the LEAP scheme is closed and is not set to restart until this July, but at the moment Green Energy Switch is offering a Connect For Help service, which is offering free energy advice to residents.
