Energy Adviser

Energise Sussex Coast is a community benefit society. Our mission is to work together to end fuel poverty and protect the environment through community led local green power & energy saving schemes. Our energy advice service helps local residents save energy and bring down their bills. Last year we saved each household we helped an average of £351. We help people in times of crisis with fuel vouchers and
other emergency support. We also help households save carbon and keep their homes warmer by providing free energy saving kit and supporting access to funding for larger measures such as insulation. The British Gas Energy Trust (BGET) fund this role.

Role purpose
To provide high quality energy advice to help residents living in fuel poverty save money and save energy.
