Energy advice

Derby Homes Energy Efficiency Team

Our Energy Efficiency Team provides free advice to tenants and leaseholders on how they can save energy and reduce their bills. We want to encourage as many people as possible to improve energy efficiency and cut their carbon footprint.  We do this by providing energy saving tips and advice, as well as guidance on using energy monitoring equipment.

We also have a useful leaflets on Energy Advice, Dealing with Condensation and How to switch Energy Supplier which can be downloaded from this page or posted out to you if you prefer.

You can also get useful information about energy saving products, grant offers and reducing your carbon footprint on websites such as the Carbon Trust, the Energy Saving Trust, and Energy Choices.
