Duncan McCombie from YES Energy Solutions, says, "It’s tough out there, and we understand the huge challenges posed by high energy prices and the cost-of-living crisis across the county.
"If you’re struggling with your bills or just want some help getting to grips with your energy use ready for the winter, we’re here for you.
"We want to help people understand how they can manage their bills and access funding which could include free financial support for loft insulation or a new boiler. Our support means people and families will improve their energy efficiency in their homes and improve their household budget for the longer-term.”
“We’ve invested over £200,000 into creating a new free advice line, accessible to all, to help more people be warmer and help make their bills more affordable.
"Our service is completely free because we’re a community company established to assist families, not to generate profits. We’ve been running for over 20 years and have helped thousands of families in that time.
