NEA is pleased to announce that the 2019 Smart Energy GB programme launches on the 7th March, with support and funding being targeted to organisations reaching people over the age of 65
Support For The Over 65s
Insight tells us that older people are less likely to take up a smart meter than any other age group. Despite evidence that the over 65s are well informed about smart meters, they have the highest levels of concern about them amongst the GB population.
Areas most concerning for older people include technical issues with smart meters and their installation; in particular, switching. This year, the Smart Energy GB in Communities programme aims to engage with trusted partners supporting people over 65 to help address their concerns.
