This is all part of E&Ws aim to reduce fuel poverty. Fuel poverty is when you spend more than 10% of your disposable income on fuel. If this is the case then grants are available to kit out your home to make it more economical. Kent qualifies for hundreds of grants, which E&W aims to make more accessible by working with utility providers to create one offer for Kent residents.
The benefits of this innovation are clear:Do you have any ideas about how the Kent Card could be used?
• Information is better targeted towards Kent people
• Carbon emissions are reduced through more focused marketing campaigns
• The number and complexity of grants are reduced
• Kent County Council saves money by having more effective and focused campaigns
