Foodbank users in Gloucester can now get help with their fuel payments.
A trial starts today in a partnership between one of the big four energy companies and two anti-poverty charities, The Trussell Trust and National Energy Action.
Under the scheme, those people with a foodbank voucher could qualify for a £49 credit to top up their gas and electricity meter.
Statement from Juliet Davenport, CEO of 'Good Energy'.
The owner of Delabole Windfarm in Cornwall has launched the UK’s first local tariff. Good Energy claims the special rate for residents could save customers around £100 a year.
People who live within two kms can apply for the tariff, which gives a 20% discount on standard electricity prices.
