Follow our customers' journeys

Greener homes retrofit project

How the project works

We've teamed up with British Gas and Worcester Bosch to cover the cost of home retrofits for nine of our customers, with co-ordination help from Quidos. We'll follow our customers through every stage of their retrofit journey - from start to finish - and we'll share it all with you here. 

Our customers and their homes

Our customers will be filming the improvements being made to their homes and sharing their experience. We'll add more customer videos during the project.
