The KEB is funded by the City of Leipzig and functions as a coordination office for energy efficiency counselling for low-income households in Leipzig, particularly those housing refugees. We can arrange access to the energy counselling programmes of the Verbraucherzentrale Leipzig (consumer advice centre) and the “Stromspar-Check” (electricity conservation check-up) of the Caritas Association Leipzig. The aim is to coach you to conserve energy, warm water and heating – helping you save real money with only small adjustments.
VZS offers counselling on proper heating, warm water use and ventilation as well as verifying your heat billing and many other topics, including:
