People who compare energy prices off the mains gas network often find higher costs and a series of specialist organisations are joining forces to address this.
Baxi Group, Warm Zone, Veolia Water Outsourcing and BGC are working with local authorities to reduce fuel poverty by utilising energy efficiency techniques to both lower fuel bills and cut down on carbon emissions, reports 24dash.com.
People living off the gas mains network usually lack access to dual fuel deals meaning they have to buy energy supplies separately for a higher cost, but network extensions may help solve the problem.
William Gillis, managing director of Warm Zone, told the website: "We aim to identify homes in the most deprived areas and enable them to benefit financially from reduced fuel bills. And we can reduce the carbon footprint of the least efficient homes in line with local authority and government targets."
The four organisations can offer specialist advice on a range of factors including the design and installation of network extensions.
Households having to allocate more than ten per cent of their annual income towards energy bills are referred to as fuel poor and numbers may have increased when energy prices rose last year.
