Big Energy Saving Week (31 October – 6 November) is run by Energy Saving Trust (EST), Citizens Advice and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and aims to help people cut their energy bills.
New figures released ahead of the campaign show that households could save an average of £300 a year by switching energy supplier, but many aren’t aware of this. Of the 15 million households who didn’t switch last year, 60% said it was because they believed they were already on the cheapest tariff available.
The cost of energy bills can be a worry for many local people.
Big Energy Saving Week is a great opportunity for people to find out about the different ways they can cut their spending on gas and electricity, whether that’s switching supplier or making their home more energy efficient.
I would encourage anyone in Inverclyde who wants to find out how much money they could save to go online at www.energysavingtrust.org.uk/scotland or call 0808 808 2282.
