Tariff and Benefits Services (TABS)
What is TABS?
TABS is a tariff switching and benefit checking service offered by Greenvision Energy to see if your tenants are on the best tariff and metering for their heating systems. We arrange the replacement of pre-payment meters with standard meters wherever possible and we make sure tenants are receiving all their benefit entitlements, including Warm Home Discount and Affordable Warmth Payment.
This service is included in every installation we carry out for social housing associations. It can save your tenants £100s per year and reduce fuel poverty thus improving their health and well-being, and encouraging long term sustainability of tenancy.
In addition, TABS offers free property checks, with a report on the current state of the heating system, damp issues and general environmental conditions with recommendations for any improvements. General energy saving advice and literature will be given to each tenant, including how to read energy bills and how to save money. An EPC can also be carried out and smart meter installed.

National Energy Action – Health and Innovation Programme: Greenvision Energy is a member of the National Energy Action (NEA) and we worked with the charity to help Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA) install energy-saving technologies in their housing stock.
The project was part of the NEA’s Health and Innovation Programme and it was one of the reasons why we created TABS. We saw the benefits of advising NCHA’s tenants on switching tariffs and the significant savings in their fuel bills.
