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

The Energy Advice Service gives Redditch 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.

Redditch Borough 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 Brandon Clayton, whose portfolio covers Environmental Services, said: “With our new partners YES Energy Solutions, we hope to offer our residents support, advice and access to funding opportunities.

“The Energy Advice Service will help us tackle the current Climate Emergency by offering top tips to save energy as well as ensuring our most vulnerable residents are not victims of fuel poverty and are able to stay warm whilst keeping fuel bills affordable.”

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, Redditch Borough 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.
