Friday 2 December is National Energy Action’s Fuel Poverty Awareness Day.

Amid the energy crisis it is needed more than ever. The average annual bill has almost doubled since this time last year – from £1,271 to £2,500 and it’s set to rise to £3,000 a year on average from April as Government support is withdrawn and the price cap is increased.

There is support available in Suffolk:

Warm Homes Suffolk – grants to help insulate and make properties more energy efficient for eligible homeowners or private tenants.

Cost of Living support – on the SCC website, links to advice for households, businesses and charitable organisations as well as ways people can offer support.

Home Energy Advice for Householders webinar – Tuesday 6 December, 11am to 12pm. The session will cover: why it’s even more important to make your home energy efficient, how to make your home more energy efficient, real examples of how different types of homes have been improved, help and support available.

Community Thermal Imaging Project – The Suffolk Climate Change Partnership is running a pilot project to enable the free use of thermal imaging cameras for Community Groups and Parish Councils to borrow to carry out community heat loss surveys.
