Energy Action for Rutland

Energy Action for Rutland aims to combat fuel poverty in the county through free energy saving advice.  The organisation has shared these details with us to alert villagers on the services available and potential benefits…

  • Energy Action for Rutland has received a £1500 prize from National Energy Action (the UK national fuel poverty charity) for its outstanding work in helping to tackle fuel poverty across the county.
  • This money will be spent on a ‘handyman’ service to include energy efficiency measures such as draught proofing, hot water cylinder jackets and heating controls to eligible residents.
  • Funded by Rutland County Council and working with partner agencies over 700 households in the county have seen benefit from the free tailored energy advice service, saving on average £230/yr.
  • There is no eligibility criteria and this year’s project will close in July – so don’t miss out…

Why have a home visit?

  • Simply switching tariff has saved Rutland residents on average £150 annually.
  • Rutland County Council has secured limited external funding to replace broken boilers/heaters and boiler servicing.
  • Loft and cavity wall insulation can reduce each heating costs by up to £250 annually on a detached property. Energy Companies Obligation funding is available – find out through us.
  • The High Sheriff of Rutland has secured funding to help vulnerable householders with practical measures including blankets, hot water bottles, electric blankets, thermal socks, draught proofing, low energy lightbulbs and funding for heating fuels in eligible properties.
