A warm welcome to our brand new blog. It is a space for us to share news and comment about developments in the energy arena, and how these may affect our everyday lives.
We’ll also share advice on how to save money, reduce energy use and lessen our impact on the environment.
Who Are We?
To get a more in-depth idea of who we are and what we do visit our website. For now though, all you need to know is that we’re a charity who provide free, impartial advice on ways to tackle fuel poverty, poor health, and climate change.
Why Have We Set Up The Blog?
Energy seems to be taking on a more prominent role in modern life.
Media coverage is full of stories on fuel costs, climate change, new technologies, consumer rights and many other aspects that are interwoven with energy. Furthermore, schemes promoting home energy-efficiency measures, along with the proliferation of price-comparison websites mean that there are now more ways to potentially save energy – and (perhaps) more importantly money – than ever before.
This barrage of (sometimes contradictory or conflicting) information can often make it difficult to work out what steps to take when trying to reduce energy use. That is where we come in.
While we spend a lot of time working closely with local authorities, social housing providers and directly with householders across South East Wales, we are also keen to be a resource for the wider, online community.
We encourage you to follow and interact with us on this blog, our Twitter and Facebook accounts, through our website, and via our phone lines. We enjoy the challenge of providing advice on a whole range of energy-related topics, so get in touch to see how we can help you!
