New partnership provides Epping Forest District Council tenants with potential energy savings solutions
Qualis Management and Epping Forest District Council has formed a new partnership with Energy Angels to provide council tenants with potential savings on their energy bills.
The partnership provides a 100% impartial energy price comparison service enabling customers to switch energy suppliers and potentially save money in minutes. This is coupled with a service to deal quickly with any meter problems before the property is relet.
Ben Johnson, Managing Director of Qualis Management said, “We are really pleased to be working with Energy Angels to provide our customers with a choice to be able to choose the provider when moving in and a tariff that suits them. Recent months have seen a rise in UK household utility bills following a surge in oil prices, coupled with the lifting of the price cap on gas and electricity prices so this service will give them the ability to potentially reduce household bills.
“The service will also enable us to save time and money by clearing and resetting meters much quicker, with a commitment from Energy Angels of just four hours, meaning our teams can begin maintenance work sooner and get new customers into their homes quicker.”
Deborah Fenton, Director of Housing and Property at Epping Forest District Council said, “The moving process is always a difficult and stressful time for customers. This new partnership will reduce the amount of time spent waiting for the work to be carried out during the void, as any meter issues are dealt with promptly, therefore speeding up the process, so customers can move in quicker.”
As part of the partnership, smart meters will also be fitted to homes during void periods to help manage future energy usage and costs and customers will be given the option to use 100% green energy tariffs.
Lewis Taylor, CEO at Energy Angels said “We’re thrilled to partner with Qualis Management and Epping Forest District Council, adding to the 500,000 UK homes under our management for energy supplies. We expect to make Qualis Management and Epping Forest District Council substantial savings each year through reduced energy costs and time savings.
“As well as supporting Qualis Management and Epping Forest District Council’s voids and lettings teams, we’re here to help residents too. The cost of energy is a key outgoing for any household; by engaging residents, supported by our switching site, we aim to make sure everyone receives affordable gas and electric.
“An estimated 11 million UK households are still on a standard variable energy tariff, and we aim to ensure that residents are aware of the options available to suit their budget and requirements.
“Our switching site offers an open and transparent market comparison, so that customers can know exactly how they stand to benefit by switching to the cheapest possible tariff.”
