Yesterday the government announced a list of business closures in updated Covid-19 guidance for the public available here. This includes non-essential shops and businesses and public spaces including libraries and community centres not currently in use for emergency services.

Many contractors will not be working other than those providing essential services; Michael Gove yesterday in an example of ‘essential’ included repairwork to a broken heating system as coming under the term and we will work with contractors offering such services. Energy saving measures can be discussed with us on our freephone advice line but these will not be offered in the short term.

We have also been informed that the Warm Homes Fund has been suspended for the time being.

While Act On Energy is cannot attend library and community advice sessions we will continue our freephone advice line.
