Devon Communities Together - Winter's Big Energy Saving Network Programme

Devon Communities Together is working in partnership with Citizens Advice to deliver this winter’s Big Energy Saving Network (BESN) programme.

BESN wishes to help domestic consumers get good value from their expenditure on energy, to use energy effectively and have warm, comfortable homes.

We want to reach those who would most benefit from our help: people on low incomes or with homes that are difficult to keep warm. However, our advice and help is relevant to all those who want to reduce their energy costs and to use energy more efficiently.

Our offer to you

We want to help those in Devon’s rural communities, away from the towns where help and advice is more often available. We are offering to come to your community to talk to groups and individuals about:

  • getting the best price from your current provider
  • the pros and cons of looking for a cheaper supplier
  • our oil purchasing scheme
  • how to use energy effectively in the home
  • measures that can be taken to make homes more energy efficient
  • the supplier services available to vulnerable customers

We also invite people to bring along their energy bills for some confidential advice on how they might reduce their costs.

We want to meet groups and individuals in your community that we can help. This may be at a regular meeting of a local organisation, an event in your village, or at a special drop in event that we can help you organise. We are also able to offer advice via a telephone session to any individuals who may prefer this method of contact.

To find out more or to arrange a visit please contact our advisors:
