Energy advice

COVID-19 UPDATE

We are now offering free telephone and video call energy advice sessions, to support those self-isolating during the Coronavirus epidemic.

We help individuals and groups to reduce their energy bills and keep their homes warmer.

From Autumn to Spring we have run energy advice cafes in five different Boroughs across South East London.

We also provide home visits that offer energy saving advice as well as the installation of easy energy-saving measures. We can also connect clients with our other projects to access energy-saving grants and more costly home energy improvements.

We are now equipped to give advice on accessing funding to get first-time gas central heating and how to reduce water bills or have water-related arrears cleared.

There are over 20,000 households in fuel poverty in Greenwich and Lewisham. So far, Selce has given training or support to almost 4,000 individuals and homes. We’ve also helped them make over £100,000 in savings – and reduce their carbon footprint into the bargain.
