Energy Friends

Energy Friends were established in 2017 to provide energy efficiency, fuel debt advice and support to households in target communities across County Durham through a network of trained volunteer community ‘Energy Friends’.

If you are a householder interested in installing new energy efficiency measures such as insulation, solar panels or a new renewable heating and hot water system Energy Friends can provide expert advice and guidance on any grants you may be entitled to. Our trained energy friends can also provide expert fuel debt advice for households struggling with their energy bills.

Since 2017 Energy Friends have provided advice and support to hundreds of households across County Durham helping them make energy efficiency improvements to their homes and saving thousands of pounds on household energy bills
