Get ready for Big Energy Saving Week

Published:  15 October, 2012

Householders can reduce their energy bills and their carbon footprint with the help of Big Energy Saving Week.

Taking place from 22 to 27 October, the national campaign is being run by Citizens Advice to help people cut their fuel bills and get all the financial support they are entitled to.

Energy advisers will be available at events across England, Scotland and Wales helping people check they are getting the best deal from their energy company, are on the cheapest way to pay and explaining how they might be able to save more by switching suppliers.

They’ll also be giving energy saving tips and talking about help available to insulate homes.

The drive follows the success of the first Big Energy Week in January this year which gave advice to over 75,000 people nationally.

Citizens Advice and its partners aim to reach around 50 million people through this campaign, including around 400 events in communities, with a particular emphasis on reaching vulnerable consumers.
