From February to June 2018, Grand Guéret council notified 2,700 households in fuel poverty that a postman would be calling by during his rounds to meet them to complete a quick questionnaire about their home. “It’s an enhanced scouting exercise”, explain the council. If needed, the mail carriers could ask a heating engineer to do a free energy assessment.

Eco-renovation of private housing is a key focus for Grand Guéret district council, which is stepping up its renovation work with the scheme “Objective renovation: access to renovation for all").

ARTEE has rolled out a scheme to benefit home owners, including a comprehensive audit, improvement packages and extra support if they wish to start work.

With its flexible Action Habitat solution, La Poste shares its eco-renovation expertise with local authorities.

The Grand Guéret contract is the third signed in one year under ARTEE's regional scheme.
