Helping families save energy and money

2018 saw us install our 10,000th free gas connection, help 700 customers unlock £100,000 lifetime savings with home energy and switching advice, and fund ‘Green Doctors’ to carry out home consultations to help customers save energy and money on their fuel bills.

Giving back with our Community Partnering Fund

Since 2016 we have provided a grants scheme for local organisations working with vulnerable and hard to reach customers. Working in partnership with Leeds Community Foundation, we can tap into the expertise and links that already exist in communities. In 2018, we expanded our fund by partnering with Northern Powergrid and doubled the investment fund under the new name, Community Partnering Fund.
