Get Free Energy Advice

Almond Energy Action is an advice service offering tenants free, confidential and impartial advice to help cut their heating and electricity bills and keep their homes warm and dry.

Energy Advice slide

Almond Energy Action is delivered in partnership with local energy charity Changeworks to all Almond tenants.

The popular service provides an experienced Affordable Warmth Advisor from Changeworks to help tenants overcome problems with heating and electricity costs or to apply for grants to make their homes warmer.

How can we help you?

Alan Cole, our Affordable Warmth Advisor, shares useful energy and money saving tips for the home and offers advice and support by visiting tenants at home, giving advice over the telephone, or via mail or email.

The Affordable Warmth Advisor can advise tenants on how to:

  • Find the cheapest energy tariff
  • Choose the best payment options
  • Apply for £140 Warm Homes Discount rebate (energy companies will pay this into your electricity account if you are in receipt of a qualifying benefit)
  • Resolve billing problems with your supplier
  • Understand your heating and hot water systems
  • Combat condensation and dampness
  • Apply for grants

A successful service

Almond Energy Action started up in April 2015 and has since advised over 500 households on energy matters and achieved savings totalling £65,000 for tenants. We have been successful in securing continued funding for the energy advice project, allowing us to offer this popular service to our tenants.

Almond’s Chief Executive George Webster, said: ‘This service is important for our tenants in order to budget for their home expenses. Heating and energy costs are a concern for many, not just those on low incomes, and the complexities of sourcing different suppliers, understanding charges and even operating heating systems can be very challenging. This project will be invaluable to many of our tenants’.
