Bringing energy advice and services to rural communities in Lincolnshire
PECT are working with East Lindsey District Council to deliver an innovative project providing energy support and advice to hard-to-reach residents, as well as those with hard-to-treat properties.
We will design and commission an electric van, fully fitted-out with a range of retrofit measures that can travel around the area. This will provide a mobile base for a team of energy-advice officers to be able to discuss individual resident’s needs as well as to demonstrate low-carbon technologies and energy-saving measures.
Bespoke Energy Van
Communities given energy advice and support
Residents discovering ways to save energy
The wider project:
The Department for Energy Security and Net Zero is funding nine projects in the Midlands, through the Midlands Net Zero Hub, and has announced the Council as a successful bidder to deliver this vital in-person support.
The funding for a two-year programme will see the recruitment of four home energy advice officers as well as working with PECT to provide an electric Energy Bus to bring information and support on energy efficiency improvements right to the heart of the district’s rural communities.
This will mean residents who may struggle to access help and advice will receive in-person support on their doorsteps to help tackle fuel poverty, live more comfortably in their homes and save money on their energy bills.
