Get all your questions about fuel bills answered by a qualified, impartial domestic energy advisor.

Keep warm and well at home for less with customised free energy advice at a local cafe.

South East London Community Energy (SELCE) is a local not-for-profit registered society for the benefit of the Community.

We offer a range of services to help local people get a better energy deal in South East London. Are you suffering from the cold or high bills? Are you reluctant to turn the heating or hot water on because of the cost? Are you worried about energy related debt or fed up with the inconvenience or poor deal of a pre-payment meter? Or would you like to know what you can do at home to save energy and money? If so, please come along to one of our energy cafes. We can help you to reduce the costs of your energy bill.

SELCE provides four types of advice and training:

For you we provide energy cafes where you can join us for tea and cake and energy advice

For your community group we can provide an interactive workshop for your clients or service users or a one to one advice desk for your event.

For your front-line workers we can provide in-depth training or a short awareness-raising workshop.

We have run pop-up advice cafe at the Woolwich Common Community Centre in Greenwich and Lewisham and we're running energy advice sessions at The Woolwich centre 10-4pm for a limited time-so book or drop in soon. Anyone is welcome to turn up or make an appointment. Just bring your latest bill or annual statement. If you can’t find these still come as we can make fair estimates still.

For households with young children we provide home visits. If you are a Parent of a child under 5, you can book a home visit with our team of fully qualified Parent Power Advisors. During the visit your advisor will provide you with advice about how to reduce your bills and fit FREE energy saving devices. Visits can take place on a Tuesday, Wednesday and (on alternate weeks) a Thursday. To book a Parent Power Home Visit first go to the Parent Power Home Visit Page on this site and take the eligibility test.

SELCE was formed by residents of Greenwich and Lewisham who want to play an active role in shaping the energy future of South East London. Taking action on climate change and fuel poverty lies at the heart of our business model. Generating renewable energy and providing advice and support for those struggling to pay their fuel bills and keep their homes warm and bills down provide the twin focus for our work. SELCE aims to speed-up the renewable revolution by capitalising on the power of community.
