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.


We have been working in the community since 1994 and in that time we have helped over 23,000 households. We are continually looking for ways to ensure homes are as energy efficient as they can be, which in turn helps reduce power bills.


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