Blitz your winter fuel bills with help from environmental charity PECT

Health & Wellbeing

This winter, PECT is offering a free home energy advice service to residents in Fenland and South Kesteven. The aim of the ‘Warm Homes’ project is to help households save energy and cut costs.

Now’s the ideal time to get in touch with the charity, with the news from climate experts at University College London that 2020 is predicted to be the coldest winter since 2013. There is substantial evidence of the detrimental impact of fuel poverty on people’s physical and mental health.

Residents will receive a free home energy advice visit from an impartial advisor who will help residents choose the best energy tariff and supplier, provide information on the national £140 Warm Home Discount and give residents a free energy pack.

“Fuel Poverty Awareness Day is held on 29th November 2019. We’re keen to raise awareness of the support available for those who are struggling to pay their fuel bills,” explains PECT’s Project Officer Nikki Dekker. “There’s lots of solutions available, and we aim to support residents who are struggling to pay their energy bills or cannot keep their home at a sufficient temperature.

PECT’s scheme has already proven successful, helping over 1,300 households in Peterborough and South Holland between 2016-2018. These households have lowered their energy bills, saved money and reduced their impact on the environment.

To book your FREE energy advice home visit or to find out more, call Nikki Dekker on 01733 568408 or email warmhomes@pect.org.uk.
