Residents affected by recent floods advised that the E.ON Energy Fund could help with the replacement of boilers and multiple white goods

By JaneBranscombe

E.ON is advising
residents who’ve been affected by recent floods that they could receive
replacement boilers or multiple white goods if they’re eligible for help from
the E.ON Energy Fund.

E.ON Energy Fund applicants
are usually limited to claiming for one appliance per household – either a
fridge, freezer, washing machine or cooker. However, E.ON is offering eligible
people whose homes have been recently flooded multiple white goods in order to
provide them with a little extra help.

The E.ON Energy
Fund is open to all energy customers, regardless of their supplier, and people
who are eligible could also receive support with the payment of energy debt.

To be eligible
for support, applicants or someone in their household
must meet one of the
following criteria, and they must also provide evidence of meeting this
criteria:

·
Be in receipt of
Pension Credit;

·
Be in receipt of
means tested Council Tax reduction;

·
Be in receipt of
Child Tax Credits or Universal Credit equivalent with a total gross household
income of £16,190 or less;

·
Be in receipt of
Income Related Employment and Support Allowance;

·
Be in receipt of
Working Tax Credits with a total gross household income of £16,190 or less;

·
Be in receipt of
Income Support or Income based Jobs Seekers Allowance;

·
Be in receipt of
Universal Credit but not self-employed or in work;

·
Have a total
household of income of £16,190 or less;

·
Be seriously ill
or have a terminal illness which can be validated with a letter from a Doctor
or Medical Practitioner.

David Bird, E.ON’s Residential
and Customer Operations Director, said
: “We know that many people are struggling
following the recent floods and that’s why we want to ensure people know that
there’s help available for those who qualify for support through our E.ON
Energy Fund.

“We set our fund up earlier
this year with the sole aim of providing assistance for people who need extra
support with their energy bills. We’d like to hear from anyone who thinks
they’re eligible so we can see how we can help.”

To apply for funding:

·
To access the simple application form for the E.ON Energy Fund, visit eonenergyfund.com or telephone 03303 80 10 90.

·
People who’ve suffered as a result of recent flooding should state ‘FLOOD APPLICATION’ on the free text
box of the application form and apply before
31st March 2016
if they want to be considered for the offer of
multiple white goods.

The £6 million
E.ON Energy Fund was set in April 2015; since then over £1 million has been
given away. Funding is subject to availability and full details about the E.ON
Energy Fund, including eligibility and how to apply, can be found at
eonenergy.com/energyfund. Charis Grants independently manages the E.ON Energy Fund; from
processing applications, to making decisions on funding, and issuing payments.

The
E.ON Energy Fund was set up following E.ON’s commitment to Ofgem in September
2014 to give back closed credits (money which E.ON has been unable to return to
customers who’ve left) to households that meet its eligibility criteria and are
therefore in need of extra support.
