Energy event to help reduce bills

ADVICE on how to reduce household energy bills is being offered up.

Moray Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) is taking part in Big Energy Saving Week, which gets underway on Monday.

The nationwide campaign focuses on raising public awareness of how to switch energy supplier or tariff to get the best deal, access discounts and make homes energy efficient.

On Thursday, volunteers and staff from Moray CAB will be on hand to provide the latest information, and will demonstrate how simple switching can be.

The event runs from 10am to 3pm and everyone is welcome to drop in to the Moray CAB office on Moss Street, Elgin.

Manager Mary Riley said: "Checking your energy tariff and switching to a cheaper deal is one of the quickest and easiest ways to cut your bills. Big Energy Saving Week is a great opportunity to get expert advice on how you can make savings in these winter months, from changing energy supplier to simple energy efficiency measures you can make in your home.

"We know people who stay with the same energy supplier often pay hundreds of pounds more a year for the same gas and electricity. We would encourage everyone to come down to the event, use our price comparison tool or contact our service for advice so they can start making savings.

"Often, consumers aren't aware that they can save such significant amounts of money by switching: our event is a quick and easy way to learn more about your bills and how to cut them down to size."

Now in its seventh year, Big Energy Saving Week is a partnership between Citizens Advice, the Energy Saving Trust and the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
