Community Building Energy Advice

Supporting community buildings to reduce their energy costs and carbon footprint in partnership with Utility Aid.

Cheshire Community Action is working in partnership with Utility Aid to help community buildings reduce energy costs, improve efficiency and advise on renewable energy. 

An increasing number of Cheshire and Warrington community buildings are struggling to cover increased energy costs and need advice and support to reduce energy usage, improve efficiency and consider new heating systems and renewable energy generation.

Community buildings have unusual energy use patterns compared to domestic properties as they are only occupied for a few hours of the day, but by large groups of individuals over the course of a week. Many have poor insulation, traditional lighting and inefficient heating systems, largely due to their age.

Utility Aid is the UK’s leading energy broker for the charity and not-for-profit sector and Cheshire Community Action is delighted to be working with them to support you to access their services. As well as helping to secure new contracts with your Electric, Gas, and Water, Utility Aid can also help with supplier problems, inaccurate bills, advising on renewable energy options, and your journey to ‘Net Zero’.

Members of Cheshire Community Action will also have access to Utility Aid’s Invoice Validation Service, often recouping hundreds of pounds from past bills if they find you’ve overpaid. Over £6 million has been recouped for customers already.

What can Utility Aid offer you?


Energy Audits on your Building – If you are looking to start your journey to Net Zero then it is recommended that you have an audit on your building. If you are a small building, Utility Aid can offer you a Remote Discovery Document, which is a cost-effective report that allows organisations to make educated decisions on the implantation of energy-efficient measures that can help reduce energy consumption.
EV Charging points – Utility Aid and RAW Charging are working together to assist customers with their EV Charging needs providing varying options ranging from fully funded to partially funded or outright purchasing. If you’d like to give your community a place to charge their electric vehicles whilst earning extra income then reach out to Utility Aid by clicking the green button below.
National Charity Tender – Utility Aid believe in giving everyone the same level of services large corporations would expect to receive. If you’ve ever felt that you’re not getting the best terms on your energy contract or if you’ve ever been treated as a credit risk, the National Charity Tender could be for you. Utility Aid have set up purchasing baskets across the third sector which allows customers more purchasing powers and competitive rates on all gas and electricity contracts.
