The second phase of Relish™ is being rolled out across 159 occupied homes in tandem with decent home works.
Phase 2 is focusing on:
The main challenge for phase 2 will be how to develop an effective advice and education programme for a large number of residents. There will be limited opportunities to incentivise and support residents on a one to one basis. We plan to support poor energy users with opportunities for additional advice so that they can understand the benefits of changing their energy habits.
One of the key Relish™ principles is to ensure that being part of the programme is a fun thing to do easy to understand, with real, tangible benefits for participants. We are working closely with residents to explore the best ways to involve and engage them in the programme.
Phase 2 has been kick started with the launch of the Relish™ show home available as an education centre for all Worthing Homes' residents. A virtual tour of the show home has also been published online for those residents that have access to the internet. We will continue to develop our online communications as well as reinforcing good energy habits through special training of the resident liaison team, surveyors, contractors and reactive maintenance team.
We will publish updates on phase 2 throughout the year.
