LEAP is a free energy and money saving service that helps residents reduce their energy bills and keep their homes warm. They offer free home visits where an advisor will assess your home and offer advice on how you could save energy. During these visits they can:

  • install free energy saving measures like LED light bulbs, hot water cylinder jackets and draught-proofing
  • review your current energy tariff to see if you could get a better deal
  • arrange a free money advice consultation
  • advise on available funding for other energy-saving home improvements

Their services are open to any eligible residents who are struggling to pay their energy bills, including homeowners, private renters and housing association tenants.

Warmer Homes

Warmer Homes offer fully funded central heating, low carbon heating and insulation measures to help keep your home warm and your bills low.

To qualify for support you need to have a household income that is below £30,000 per year and be living in a property with an EPC rating of E, F or G. This support is also open to tenants, but you would need permission from the property's owner to carry out any works, and the landlord would need to make a contribution.

Collective energy buying - join our Community Energy Switch scheme

The iChoosr switching scheme is being launched again with the following dates:

  • Registration opens: 4th September 2023
  • Auction: 3rd October 2023
  • Offers out: From 16th October 2023
  • Acceptance closes: 27th November 2023

The last iChoosr switching scheme auction closed on 27th November 2023 - we will let you know when the next one is available

You could save money on your energy bills by joining a collective buying scheme like Adur & Worthing Big Community Switch, which is run by the Council in partnership with collective energy buyer, iChoosr.

As a member of the scheme representing a large group of residents you have more bargaining power as suppliers compete for the opportunity to offer you the lowest energy tariff.

iChooser negotiate with suppliers at auction, and the one that offers the cheapest tariff will then offer you a personalised quote so you can see how much money you could save.

Taking part is completely free, and there is no obligation for you to switch suppliers.
