Following the success of two previous campaigns of the Big Energy Saving Network, which reached over 200,000 consumers, the Department of Energy and Climate Change has provided £1m funding to continue the programme in 2015/16. The Big Energy Saving Networkwill run through this autumn/winter, with outreach activity concluding in March 2016. Community Lincs has yet again achieved success as one of the 170 champions from across the country delivering this year’s scheme.
Community Lincs’ trained advisors will deliver an extensive programme of outreach to vulnerable consumers and Frontline Workers.
Consumers will receive impartial advice and support on:
ü Suitable tariffs, the cheapest way to pay bills, and how to reduce the amount of energy they use.
ü Taking control over their tariff and supplier and how to get the best deal to suit them and their needs.
ü Hear about schemes offered by the Government or energy suppliers that could help with their energy costs.
Frontline Workers will receive information that will assist them to support those vulnerable consumers they work with to:
ü Cut energy bills through switching tariff or payment method.
ü Explore eligibility for the Warm Home Discount, the Energy Company Obligation and other energy efficiency schemes.
If you are interested in booking a session for a consumer group, or a group of staff or volunteers please contact:
