Forum 21 is proud to announce that it has won the South West regional Community Footprint Award from National Energy Action. This means we have £2000 to spend on organising an energy advice roadshow around West Somerset, following the success of our pilot advice centre in Watchet in the autumn. If we are lucky enough to win the national prize, we plan to open a more permanent centre in the future.
Come and find us at one of our 6 energy advice events in February and March, where our team of trained volunteers will be offering free, impartial advice on saving money on energy bills and accessing grants to improve the energy efficiency of our homes. We can give you information on all types of insulation, heating, renewable energy, finding installers and sources of funding. We can lend you an energy monitor to tell you how much energy you are using and how much it is costing you. And we can arrange a free energy survey for your home.
Have you changed your energy supplier recently? We’ll show you how to do so and save £100-£150 pounds a year. Do you want to know about the government’s Green Deal and how you can use it to pay for energy improvements to your home? Our advisers will explain the scheme. Are your fuel bills giving you a headache? We’ll be joined by advisers from the West Somerset Advice Bureau who can help with money problems and make a benefit check too if you need one.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to find the answers to your energy and money problems, brought to a venue local to you. All you have to do is pop in to one of our events. They will be open from 10am to 1pm in each place. Look out for local publicity, and let us know if you’d like a poster to display.
