The partnership is also working on an EU-funded project to help business parks reduce their carbon emissions and energy costs by adopting sustainable energy technology.

Help and advice to stay warm and cut your energy bills

The West Sussex Affordable Energy website contains information on financial support including:

It also contains information about the Priority Services Register. This is available to anyone of pensionable age, living with a disability or chronic illness, or who has a visual or hearing impairment. It can provide access to free services, such as gas safety checks.

Your local Wellbeing Hub can also tell you where you can get confidential and impartial financial advice if you are having difficulty meeting your energy costs.

Am I on the best energy tariff?

It is important that you are on the most economical tariff for you. You can contact Citizens Advice in West Sussex on 0344 477 1171 for free and confidential advice, or you can visit their website. The Ofgem website also has good advice on energy switching.

Your Energy Sussex offers its own, competitive, council-supported energy tariff for people that live in the county. All customers get 100% renewable electricity and any surplus generated by Your Energy Sussex is paid into a fuel poverty fund that will be used to support local people who are struggling to pay their bills.

You can get a quote online or call free of charge on 0800 952 0001.
