The Powerhouse project helps young people build the skills they need to manage their energy use effectively and make informed decisions about it. Accessing the scheme early will help you to avoid getting into difficulty with your fuel bills and falling into debt.


Support will equally be made available to those who have already fallen behind with their fuel payments, by accessing benefits to help pay their energy bills.


We tailor our sessions to your individual needs and offer face-to-face, online and telephone advice on:

  • Tips for reducing energy waste and keeping your home warm and damp-free
  • Access to grants for heating and insulation
  • Get smart meters installed to track and adapt your energy use
  • Access benefits you are eligible for to help you pay your fuel bill
  • Help with switching energy suppliers
  • Help out of fuel debt
  • Build a sustainable, debt-free energy future – deal with the insulation issues now and you will be saving on your energy bills for years to come
  • Take positive action to reduce pollution and protect the future of our shared home, our planet.

You can take part in this free scheme if you are:

  • Aged 16-24
  • Not in employment, education or training /leaving care
  • Living in Cornwall
