Who are we?


Community Energy Action (CEA) is a charitable trust that is committed to ensuring people keep warm, dry and healthy in their homes.


Having worked in the community for over 24 years, we have helped over 23,000 homes and we are continually looking for ways to ensure your home is as energy efficient as it can be, which in turn helps reduce your power bills.


As a charitable trust, any surplus made goes back into the trust. This help those less fortunate in our community keep warm, dry, healthy, and energy efficient in their homes. We provide trusted, objective and fair advice. Our aim is to ensure a quality service for you and your home’s health.
