Fuel Poverty

Welcome to the Fuel Poverty Project

Torridge, North, Mid and West Devon Citizens Advice is offering specialist energy advice as part of a new Fuel project funded by Scottish Power.

One of the biggest savings on fuel is often made by switching supplier.  If you have been with your electric or gas supplier for some time, it’s quite possible you could make a huge annual saving if you switch.  People on a low income or means-tested benefits, may also be eligible to apply for Warm Home Discount from their current energy supplier.  Anyone receiving Pension Guarantee Credit should get this automatically but those not in receipts of this benefit will need to apply for it.  Around 15 of the largest suppliers offer this and have just reopened for applications for 2017-18. The suppliers’ websites will have details on eligibility and an online application form, or you can give the Customer Service team a call to register.
