Evaluation of the ESF Local Service Board Development and Priority Delivery Project
Powering Up Communities First is a pilot project which engages with households, particularly those living on low incomes in Communities First areas or in fuel poverty in Torfaen. The overall aim of the project is to reduce energy usage and energy costs for households, through the installation of energy-saving measures and related community engagement and education activities. The pilot started in March 2012 and will run until December 2014. The project is run in partnership with Melin Homes, Torfaen County Borough Council, Communities First and Bron Afon Housing Association. Melin Homes is the main delivery partner.
