Award win for supporting vulnerable customers in Yorkshire

YES Energy Solutions were crowned 'Vulnerable Customer Support Campaigner of the Year' at the Yorkshire and Humberside Energy Efficiency Awards on Friday (July 5).

We were awarded for our multiple Yorkshire energy efficiency schemes in which funding is secured for residents suffering from fuel poverty due to very high fuel bills.

Disadvantaged customers received funding towards energy saving home improvements such as insulation and brand new A-rated boilers so they can live in greater comfort.

Customers helped had a range of vulnerabilities which included people with disabilities and serious health conditions, the elderly, families with young children, pregnant women and people in receipt of benefits.

Over 4,000 vulnerable customers received support in the company’s energy efficiency schemes, many of whom were from the region.

The energy efficient home improvements installed will save a total of £46,416,394 on the future lifetime fuel bills of vulnerable people.

Saving disadvantaged customers money on their energy bills has tackled the fuel poverty problem in the Yorkshire and Humberside region that stands at 12.1% of all households, which is above the national average (Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, 2018).

YES Energy Solutions were awarded for the amount of people they helped escape fuel poverty, as well as the safeguards they put in place to ensure home improvements had as little impact as possible.

Duncan McCombie, CEO of YES Energy Solutions, said: “Helping vulnerable people is what drives this company, and we are delighted to receive this award for our hard work.”

“As a Community Interest Company, we strive to help people in our home county as much as possible, and it is a pleasure to be recognised for this.”

YES Energy Solutions are currently working with a number of councils in Yorkshire to deliver energy efficiency schemes for householders in the region.
