Big Energy Saving Week 2015
It's Big Energy Saving Week once again and all over the UK organisations are offering advice and raising awareness about energy efficiency.
The campaigns' fifth year kicked off on 26 October and will run until the end of the week. Citizens Advice, the Energy Saving Trust and the Department of Energy and Climate Change along with other charities and organisations have been busy working together to bring information to consumers online, over the phone and at events.
Check. Switch. Save.
The campaign is focusing on the idea of 'Check. Switch. Save.' prompting consumers to check they aren't paying more on fuel bills than they have to, switching energy suppliers and taking simple steps to save energy at home. You can find out if there are any events running in your area by visiting Citizens Advice.
Consumers are also being urged to check that they are receiving all of the benefits they are entitled to when it comes to energy and staying warm. This includes schemes like the Winter Fuel Payment and the Energy Company Obligation which you can learn more about on Boiler Grants.
With many of us now switching our heating back on for the autumn and winter period this is a great opportunity to find out if you are able to make any savings on your energy bills and make your home more comfortable during the colder months.
