Residents in Bromsgrove can receive free advice through the council’s new Energy Advice Service to help them cut their fuel bills and keep warm for less this winter.

The Energy Advice Service gives Bromsgrove residents the opportunity to speak to expert advisors who will provide tailored guidance on tariff switching, how best to use heating controls, and easy lifestyle changes which can be made to save energy.

Residents can also learn which energy efficiency upgrades such as insulation types and heating solutions will be most cost effective for their type of property.

In addition, eligible householders will be guided on available funding towards energy efficiency installations including A-rated boilers and insulation to help them make significant savings on their fuel bills.

Bromsgrove District Council are working with new delivery partner, YES Energy Solutions, who will provide tailored advice and facilitate energy efficiency installations through a network of accredited installers.

YES Energy Solutions are also accessing funding through the Government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme to provide additional financial support for installations.

Cllr Margaret Sherrey, whose portfolio covers Environmental Services, said: “With winter well underway, our Energy Advice Service is aiming to provide people in the area with the guidance they need on how to stay warm whilst keeping fuel bills affordable.

“With our new partners YES Energy Solutions, we hope to offer householders effective support with energy advice and easier access to funding opportunities.”

Residents who would like to receive energy advice or discover if they are eligible for funding are advised to call the Energy Advice Service on 03301 355 321.

Alongside the Energy Advice Service, Bromsgrove District Council is continuing their involvement in the Warmer Worcestershire partnership alongside local energy advice agency Act on Energy.

This countywide partnership delivers funding from the Warm Homes Fund for the installation of first-time central heating in mains gas areas for eligible homeowners or private tenants.
