The Hugo App is a mobile application that helps people to reduce their energy consumption, save money on their energy bills, and earn rewards for their efforts.


The Hugo Winter Cashback scheme is a program that rewards users for powering down at certain times during the winter months. This helps to relieve pressure on the national grid DFS scheme, but it also puts money back in the pockets of Hugo users. Now, thanks to the partnership with Fuel Bank Foundation, these earnings can help people struggling with fuel poverty.


As a result of requests from Hugo users, Hugo has partnered with Fuel Bank Foundation, a charity that provides emergency help to people living without heat, light and power in their homes because they can’t afford to top up their prepayment meter. The partnership provides a new opportunity for those who wish to help people living in fuel poverty. Hugo users can now donate funds earned from the Winter Cashback to support the vital work of the Fuel Bank Foundation.


Fuel poverty is a serious problem in the UK, affecting many families and individuals who struggle to pay for the energy and therefore face living without heat, light and hot water, especially during the colder months. Ben Dhesi, the founder of the Hugo Energy App, said


“By partnering with the Fuel Bank Foundation, Hugo Energy App is really pleased that we can help Hugo users make a real difference in the lives of those in need.”


Matthew Cole, the CEO of Fuel Bank Foundation, said that:


“This partnership is an inspiring example of what can be achieved when companies work together to create positive change. By focusing on the people’s and the planet’s needs, the Hugo Energy App shows us that there are always opportunities to make a meaningful impact and make a difference to people’s lives.”


In a time when many people feel disconnected and uncertain, it’s heart-warming to see organisations come together to offer solutions and support to those most in need. Thanks to the initiatives like this we can make a positive difference in our communities and beyond.  HUGO will also support the donation by adding their 20% Winter Cashback fee to every donation made by a HUGO user.
