Action is being taken in Suffolk to help people reduce their energy bills.

Energy bills have recently reached an all-time high. This impacts on everyone within our county, but particularly affects the elderly, the vulnerable, and those with low incomes.

To help address this, the Councils in Suffolk have joined forces to bring local residents Suffolk Energy Action – a new, trusted, energy saving scheme. This follows the successful award of £5.6m to Suffolk County Council and the seven District and Borough councils in Suffolk that collectively form part of the ‘Suffolk Climate Change Partnership’.

Suffolk Energy Action is a quality scheme, tailored to the needs of residents living in Suffolk. The scheme is designed to help all Suffolk residents save money on their energy bills and encourage the reduction of carbon emissions through energy efficiency improvements like wall insulation and replacement boilers. Suffolk Energy Action will provide free/subsidised assessments on the energy performance of homes, identify potential improvements, and provide options and advice for funding.

Over the coming months, Suffolk Energy Action representatives will be raising awareness of the scheme in your local community by leafleting households and knocking on doors. Your local district, borough, town or parish Council are aware of this scheme. All representatives will carry appropriate identification badges, but if the public are in any way uncertain about their authenticity, they should contact the scheme’s free-phone number to verify this on: 0800 840 90 90 or go to
