Save energy and money

This week (22 - 27 October) is Big Energy Saving Week and Mansfield District Council is reminding people how to save energy and reduce their bills.

Citizens Advice, Energy Saving Trust, the Government, energy suppliers and other voluntary and charitable organisations are working together on the national initiative to bring together all the available help and advice on how to cut down your fuel bills.  

The Citizens Advice website www.citizensadvice.org.uk has lots of information on how to check you're getting the best deal for your energy and any help you may be entitled to, how to switch tariffs or suppliers for a better deal, and advice on home insulation and using less energy. 

By following the three simple steps below you could reduce your fuel bill without having to cut down on the energy you use.

1. Check you are getting the best deal from your current supplier,

2. Check if there is a better way to pay your bills (ie by direct debit), and

3. Check you are getting all the benefits and help you are entitled to.

Cllr Philip Shields, Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: "Big Energy Saving Week is a great reminder that there are lots of ways you can cut down on energy use and save money too. As winter approaches, that doesn't mean going without heat - simply cutting down on wasted energy could have a big impact on your bills. You could save lots of money simply by checking you're not paying more than you have to for your energy by changing tariffs or suppliers."
