Tackling Fuel Poverty Together
Together Energy has joined forces with The National newspaper to create a unique partnership that will help tackle fuel poverty.
It is estimated that 619,000 households are affected by fuel poverty in Scotland alone, representing one in four households.
Under the new partnership, Together Energy is offering readers of The National a 25 month fixed energy tariff generated from a 100% sustainable source. For every customer who signed up in the first month £60 was donated to help fuel poverty and already more than £5,000 is ready to be gifted to local foodbanks who are ensuring the money is distributed to the people who need it the most.
Kevin Greenhorn, Chief Operating Officer at Together Energy said, “We believe this initiative is the first of its kind and whilst we are not claiming to be eradicating fuel poverty, we are raising awareness and helping vulnerable people as best we can and that can only be a good thing.”
The partnership will also provide recruitment opportunities for vulnerable young people. For every 1,000 customers, The National will sponsor a new recruit to join Together Energy. The company operates a unique recruitment policy in favour of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
