Support is available to help eligible groups seek lower fuel costs.
LEAP (Local Energy Advice Partnership) is a completely free service run in partnership with Peterborough, Rutland, Fenland and South Cambs councils and aims to tackle fuel poverty.
The new scheme will be run as free telephone advice calls which cover the same areas as the home visits used to. LEAP can still help residents in the same ways as before including:
Help residents switch energy supplier for cheaper electric and gas and advice on Warm Homes Discount
Refer for insulation measures such as loft, cavity wall, external wall installs.
Provide energy saving and debt advice.
Post out easy measures such as 5 x LED light bulbs, radiator reflector panels and draught proofing.
We can also refer eligible residents on for:
Emergency boiler repairs and replacement boilers
First time central heating installation
Free replacement white goods – fridges, freezers, washing machines, electric cookers
Install Free Google Nest thermostats
There is also the potential for a short follow up visit if residents are unable to fit the easy measures themselves or need further help.
To refer residents into the scheme, they need to apply by phone or online.
