Big Energy Saving Week runs from 21st to 27th January this year. The week focuses on raising public awareness of how to save money on energy costs by switching energy supplier or tariff, accessing discounts or grants, and making homes more energy efficient. Citizens Advice runs Big Energy Saving Week in collaboration with the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the Energy Saving Trust and local partners like us.
On Saturday 26th January we are running an energy advice event in Shirley Warren from 10am to 1pm. There will be curtain lining and draught-proofing workshops, price comparisons, help with energy bills, information about grants available, energy saving goodies and free refreshments. More information can be found on the Facebook event.
