This year Big Energy Saving Week starts on Monday 21 January 2019. It is a national campaign to help people cut their energy bills and get all the financial support they are entitled to.
The week focuses on raising public awareness of:
- how to save money on energy costs by switching energy supplier or tariff
- how to access discounts or grants
- how to make homes more energy efficient.
This is the 8th Big Energy Saving Week and is a partnership between Citizens Advice Scotland (CAB), Home Energy Scotland, Citizens Advice and the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy with the support of numerous organisations, charities and companies.
Join one of the CHECK-SWITCH-SAVE events in Angus on Tuesday 22 January :
- at FriockHub, Eastgate, Friockheim DD11 4TG, 9.30am-11.30am
- at Firestation, Scott Street, Brechin DD9 7BQ, 12.30pm-2.30pm
We’ve all probably already noticed a chill in the air. It’s the time of year to start thinking of dusting off the thermostat and dreading the heating bill that follows.
However, help is at hand – The Citizens Advice Scotland website gives information about grants and schemes which may help you to make your home more energy efficient. You can also get information about grants that you may be able to get if you are in debt to your energy supplier.
Warm & Well Angus offers a home visiting service to older and disabled adults who are unable to leave their homes and are worried by their energy bills, scams or housing problems.
Fully-trained volunteer advisers help people stay in their own homes and improve their overall health by providing general advice with emphasis on energy matters, housing issues, scams and benefit checks (income maximisation)..
To enquire about this service, contact the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) by phoning 01241 870661 ext 234
