Energy advice line for ECCA members

Posted on July 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

The English Community Care Association (ECCA) has joined forces with a care home energy supply broker to launch a new helpline for its members.

The service launched by ECCA and D-ENERGi, will offer free advice on a range of energy issues as well as helping members to reduce their operating costs for electricity and gas and with rebates for customers who suspect they may have been overcharged. It will also offer operators advice on how to make their care homes more environmentally friendly.

The energy helpline will be promoted at this year’s ECCA conference on the November 12th, at the holiday Inn, Bloomsbury, London. The helpline team will offer a drop-in clinic to discuss any existing problems with energy suppliers and offer practical solutions and advice.
