Smart Energy Fund GB, fighting Yorkshire’s fuel poverty for free May 10, 2023

Smart Energy GB

We have partnered with Smart Energy GB to deliver no-cost smart meter guidance, helping fuel poor Yorkshire residents regain control of their energy usage.

YES is delivering a comprehensive, campaign across the year, preparing householders for the switch over by providing free, impartial advice.

Expert teams from YES are highlighting the benefits of the in-home display, and how residents can use them to their advantage, with a target to reach 10,000 households from deprived areas.

Residents who opt in will be unsurprised by their monthly bill, and only pay what is necessary, as the meter sends regular readings to suppliers.

They will benefit from a seamless, simple display that clearly shows their daily, weekly and monthly energy use – a huge benefit when a householder struggles with costs.

An estimated 7.5 million households are in fuel poverty as of April 2023, with the cost of energy likely to impact the UK for the foreseeable future, according to NEA.

With energy costs having an undeniable effect on householders, we are urging Yorkshire organisations to join us in the fight against fuel poverty, and will be attending events in the area to offer smart meter advice.

YES CEO Duncan McCombie said: “Millions of households across the UK are feeling a lack of agency when it comes to their energy usage, and record numbers are reaching out for help with their finances.

“After installing a smart meter, energy customers can be certain about their energy usage and won’t be taken by surprise with higher payments than expected.

“By banding together and combining resources and knowledge, we take accountability for what needs to be done – providing householders with practical advice that matters.”

Organisations interested in working with us or households seeking support can contact YES Energy Solutions on 01422 880100 for further information, or view our smart meter page here.
