This project aims to work along side and build on the work of the first Manchester Energy Advice Project run by Adactus Housing Association, which has already been funded by the Trust, by extending the project’s target area into the Rusholme area of Manchester. The project gives energy efficiency advice to people in their own homes, promotes this agenda in the local community, empowers local community groups to disseminate this advice and aims to increase the number of residents accessing energy saving products – including those funded by government grant schemes. For the second year, the project seeks to distribute Electrisave units to at least 10% of project beneficiaries. The unit allows customers to see, in real time how much electricity is used and how much it costs. A full time energy advisor will continue to be employed to carry out this work.
