Start Spring with less energy worry: help toward energy debts from a community interest company Mar 20, 2024

Start Spring with less energy worry: help toward energy debts, fuel vouchers and more from an award winning community interest company.

As we step into spring the cost of living remains high and many households are struggling with their energy bills as standing charges rise and energy debt reaches a record figure of £3.1 billion.

In response to the continued pressure on household bills, energy experts and community interest company YES Energy Solutions have allocated over £250,000 of its profits for purpose to a dedicated Warmer Homes Fund – provided to give immediate relief for mounting energy debts and additional funding for home improvements.

YES Energy Solutions is helping residents across the country with funds to make homes warmer and greener whilst combatting fuel debt in the community. The YES Warmer Homes Fund can assist with up to £250 to help combat fuel debt for eligible households up until 31 March.

Payments depend on how the household pays for energy and include payments direct to energy suppliers, fuel vouchers to help people using prepayment meters, and contributions towards the costs of oil and bottled gas.

To check eligibility, householders can simply send a text with the word ADVICE to 82228. This simple step starts a friendly conversation to help identify whether you can benefit from energy debt relief or home upgrades like wall or loft insulation.

YES Energy Solutions, a community interest company with over 20 years of experience, works with funding partners and quality installers to help homeowners create warmer, more efficient, and affordable homes. In the last year alone, the organisation has helped over 5,000 households receive funding to improve their home.

Duncan McCombie, YES Energy Solutions’ CEO, said: “I am proud of the hard work of the YES team, who have grown our community interest company to be able to provide this dedicated pot of relief funding to help those who most need it. We have over a quarter of a million pounds available to provide immediate help to those in our communities who may be in energy debt, need a new boiler and cannot afford it, or are struggling to top up their prepayment meters. Everyone deserves a warm home and we’re on a mission to make that a reality.”

“Our service is completely free because we’re a community interest company established to assist households, and use our profits for a community purpose. If you’re struggling with your bills or just want some help getting to grips with your energy use, we’re here for you. We’ve been running for over 20 years and have helped thousands of households across the UK in that time.”

To access support from the Warmer Homes Fund, don’t hesitate to call YES Energy Solutions on 03301 359 110 or text the word ADVICE to 82228.
