Through a number of partnerships Switched On Portsmouth were able to offer Cynthia expert advice which lead to a number of energy saving measures being offered at no cost. Gosport residents can access the same support via Switched On Gosport.

“I’m so happy with my new heating system, the installers have worked miracles. I can’t tell you enough how brilliant the whole process was, they were lovely people. I’d give the scheme 15 out of 10” – Cynthia

In total Cynthia received £4,200 worth of home energy improvements which deliver her an annual saving of £3,740 including increased income.



“I was feeling quite down following a string of heavy bills and increased outgoings.

My home visit from LEAP was like a breath of fresh air. The adviser was so friendly and helpful and I have found his advice invaluable and very uplifting following a very long winter. Thank you for such a great service.”

Martin was recently visited by a Home Energy Adviser.

Following the visit Martin was given some “energy pledges”. These are the actions recommended during the home visit, such as maximising wash loads and only boiling what you need in the kettle. On checking cheaper energy suppliers via the energy switching website, Martin managed to save £300 on his annual energy bill.

“My home visit was brilliant, I did not know this kind of help existed and now I have told everyone. What a great scheme – extremely helpful and really good service, I was so impressed!”
