YES support Fuel Poverty Awareness Day Nov 28, 2019

Fuel Poverty Awareness Day

Fuel Poverty Awareness Day falls on Friday 29th of November and YES Energy Solutions are supporting the day.

Fuel poverty is caused by low incomes, high energy prices and energy inefficient housing which results in people unable to pay their fuel bills.

It is estimated that fuel poverty affects 3.5 million UK households which is roughly 12.9% of all households.

Our company mission revolves around alleviating fuel poverty across the county and we are working towards this by partnering with utilities, local authorities, housing associations and installers.

Fuel Poverty Awareness Day was created by National Energy Action, a charity that undergo a range of activities to support and enhance the work of their members and stakeholders in treating the symptoms of fuel poverty.

Maria Wardrobe, Director of Communications at NEA, said: ‘’This winter, thousands of people will fall victim to the cold. It’s invading our homes and causing breathing problems, strokes and heart attacks.

“It’s making people’s lives stressful and miserable, and preventing our children from thriving.”

Duncan McCombie, CEO of YES Energy Solutions explained: “Fuel poverty is a plight that far too many people face in this country.

“Someone in fuel poverty frequently has to make the choice between a warm home or a warm meal, and so often these people have families, are elderly or suffer from an illness.

“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.”

YES Energy Solutions are looking to work with organisations keen to reduce fuel poverty, and are currently managing multiple projects across Great Britain.
