National Fuel Poverty Awareness Day Dec 01, 2022

National Energy Action’s Fuel Poverty Awareness Day.

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

The average annual bill has almost doubled since this time last year, from £1,271 to £2,500 and its set to rise to £3,000 a year on average from April as Government support is withdrawn and the price cap is increased.

Around 10,000 more people die across the UK every winter from cold homes, with even more people being thrown into fuel poverty every day.

This makes raising awareness a very important task that everyone can help towards.

The work we do as a company includes helping residents receive funding towards home energy upgrades in order to reduce CO2 and keep homes warmer at a much lower cost.

Duncan McCombie, CEO of YES Energy Solutions explained:

“Fuel poverty is a constantly growing issue in the UK.

“Someone in fuel poverty frequently has to make the choice between a warm home or a warm meal, a choice no person or family should have to make.

“However, our staff are working to turn this around through our energy efficiency schemes all over the country to provide funding for home improvements to get people out of fuel poverty.”
