Ofgem’s 2.2m for twelve chosen charities

Twelve charities are expecting to see more than £2.2 million of funding given to them from Ofgem‘s Energy Industry Voluntary Redress Scheme.

The scheme collects voluntary payments from a variety of energy companies throughout the country that may have breached rules.

The funds then are given to support vulnerable customers who may have been affected.

Each of these 12 charities shall be allocated grants which can be at a total of between £40,000 to £386,000 for their projects for up to two years, the Energy Saving Trust said.

The selected projects which recieve the grants aim to help assist households in the bid to reduce their bills, tackle fuel poverty, and help to support the ongoing transition to net zero.

Charles Hargreaves, Ofgem’s Deputy Director of Conduct and Enforcement, said: “This funding will help struggling consumers to manage and save energy, directly helping those in hardship to pay their energy bills and also to go greener too.”
