People in Rutland can benefit from a free energy advice service that can help cut energy bills by hundreds of pounds.
The Local Energy Advice Partnership (LEAP) is a free energy and money saving service for anyone who has a long term illness or disability, as well as households on a low income.
The LEAP service is provided by Rutland County Council and can check energy tariffs to make sure you are getting the cheapest possible deal, which could lead to savings of more than £280 a year.
In addition, the services offers free, simple energy saving measures and useful tips that can help cut household energy bills even further. It can also help with benefits, debt and other money problems via a free telephone advice service, and refer service users for further energy efficiency improvements, such as loft insulation or a new boiler.
“LEAP is a fantastic free service that can deliver significant savings for vulnerable people and families on low incomes, who may be spending a large proportion of their income on energy bills. As we head into winter, bills can creep up and start to place a big strain on household budgets. If you have a long-term health condition, a disability, or you’re struggling with your personal finances, get in touch with LEAP to see if they can help cut your energy costs.”
Councillor Lucy Stephenson, Cabinet Member for the Environment
