Discounted energy advice for householders

The Severn Wye Energy Agency, a non-profit company and registered educational charity has managed several projects on behalf of the 6 Local Authorities throughout Gloucestershire, including the Gloucestershire Warm and Well scheme that is a heating and home insulation grant scheme that has improved the energy efficiency of over 34,000 homes since the scheme began in 2001. They have a pretty good track record, so it is good news to hear that Stroud District Council have provided funding so they can offer detailed home energy audits to householders in the Stroud area at a discounted price.

Below is some information from them about what is included in the survey - this is very different from some of those so-called ‘get rich quick’ companies who do not have the interest of the client or their property in mind. You can see some of their work at: www.target2050.org.uk Click read more to see more.

Severn Wye Energy Agency has a long track record of helping householders to turn their home into a low carbon, low cost building. By combining expert assessment of the property with an impartial, technology neutral approach, the Severn Wye Energy Agency can help you install the right measures for your property and back these up with behaviour changes that will further reduce your bills.

What we offer:

•        Experienced technical experts who come out and visit your house
