Big Energy Week
Help is at hand through Big Energy Week (16-21 January 2012) which is being run by Citizens Advice.
During Big Energy Week you can get practical advice on cutting your fuel bills and help to see if you are getting all of the financial support you are entitled to. You can pick up a leaflet with tips and advice on cutting your fuel bills at your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
A new website is full of tips on how to cut your energy bills. I joined Citizens Advice Teresa Perchard in Westminster who said, “We know hikes in prices have put extra pressure on people’s budgets at a time when money is already tight. Day in day out local Bureaux are helping people who can’t afford their fuel bills."
“We’re worried that some people are struggling unnecessarily because they’re not on the best deal; live in homes that haemorrhage heat or are not getting all of the financial help available to them.”
