Free energy advice service launches in South Holland

This spring, the charity Peterborough Environment City Trust (PECT) is launching a new energy advice service, available for residents within the South Holland area.

The project ‘Warm Homes South Holland’ aims to help households by providing free information to enable residents to stay warm and healthy in their homes, while saving money.

Residents will  receive a FREE home energy advice visit from an impartial advisor, gain advice in choosing the best energy tariff and supplier, access information on the national £140 Warm Home Discount and get a FREE energy pack.

PECT’s scheme has already proven its success, helping over 500 households in Peterborough and Fenland in 2016 by lowering their carbon footprint and energy bills.

The project is funded by The Fenland Green Power Co-operative. With these funds, the charity will aim to deliver over £45,000 energy savings for low-income households, making a real impact in the community and improving residents’ quality of life in South Holland.

“As a charity, our mission is to protect and enhance the environment throughout Peterborough and beyond,” explains PECT’s CEO Carly Leonard. “We see the reduction of energy use as an essential element in helping us achieve this aim. The service will also be of massive benefit to local residents.”

Jan Mellmann, Chairman of Fenland Green Power, says: “Fenland Green power are delighted that PECT is able to start this programme swiftly. We are pleased the project targets fuel poverty in South Holland, in the communities close to our wind turbines at Deeping St Nicholas.”
