Fuel Poverty Awareness Day

Thursday 30 November is National Fuel Poverty Awareness day.

Today the Sero Net Gwynedd Project was over in Porthi Dre in Caernarfon giving advice and distributing heated blankets and heat packs.

Porthi Dre is a Community Hub in the town of Caernarfon, which supports the residents of the Caernarfon area by providing food, clothes and more.

Gwen Thomas, Sero Net Gwynedd Project Manager, said: “We are proud to be able to commit to offering support to the residents of Gwynedd on how to improve efficiency within their homes and to reduce their energy costs.

“As winter approaches, it highlights the need in our communities for help with heating their homes, Gwynedd has the highest fuel poverty rate in Wales, with 23 per cent struggling with rising costs.

“The Sero Net Gwynedd Project is a partnership between a number of local organisations throughout Gwynedd, with the aim of showing a collaborative, innovative and proactive response to the need to decarbonize our houses and communities.”
