On one hand, our volunteer activity is centred around providing recommendations to families to optimise their electrical bill and lower their energy consumption, and on the other hand, to identify risky situations in electrical installations, which will later be rectified by certified installers. In the future, we also want to work on a more profound energy rehabilitation in homes, in collaboration with other companies that will donate the materials.
The project started in Zaragoza in late 2015, and was later also implemented in Barcelona. After two editions that helped 167 families in a situation of energy vulnerability, at Endesa and Endesa Foundation, we set the objective of having the project gradually reach a global scope.
To expand the number of beneficiaries, we have organised training workshops that volunteers, families directly involved in the programme and other people that may also benefit can participate in. We also notified the families who meet the requirements that they can benefit from the social rebate. In total, we estimate that the average economic saving has been more than €120 per year per home in these two first editions.
