District and Communal Energy Systems

Fuel Poverty Action Logo

Thanks to Ruth at Fuel Poverty Action for highlighting how residents at Stretford House won a victory in the fight against a super tariff being charged by Trafford Housing Trust after they'd monopolised the energy supply for heating and hot water.

Ruth has offered fantastic support and I'd urge anybody experiencing problems with communal and district energy systems to support Fuel Poverty Action.

I know this is an issue pushing thousands of people into fuel poverty, it's crucial that we keep highlighting this problem until something is done to give people the means to hold landlords accountable for such indifferent behaviours and attitudes.

Cold kills thousands of people every year.
