How we contribute to society


HouseAt The Energy Backyard we believe that companies and individuals have a social and environmental impact with their actions, and we will make our share to promote positive change.

 

Here you can see our main actions:

 

  • The Energy Backyard offers free advice for households at risk of fuel poverty. If you or some friend or relative is struggling to pay the energy bills, please, get in touch and we will provide advice, referrals to other organisations or a free visit according to the situation. On the top of that, Miguel has volunteered with Peabody Housing Association to provide energy advice for residents in risk of fuel poverty.

 

  • The Energy Backyard travels using bicycle or public transport, our website is powered by renewable energy, and our letters and flyers are printed in recycled paper. We reuse materials whenever possible and we deliver our reports in electronic format.

 

  • The Energy Backyard has donated to charities like Shelter (the housing and homelessness charity) and Practical Action (who use sustainable technology to challenge proverty and improve the lives of people everywhere).
