Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire is backing Citizen Advice Bureau's Big Energy Saving Week taking place from 22-27 October. Big Energy Saving Week is an opportunity for local residents to find out what they can do to cut energy bills down to size and help make them more affordable.
The website has helpful information on how to check if you're getting the best deal on energy, any help you're entitled to, how to switch to another tariff or supplier if you can get a better price elsewhere, and advice on how to insulate your home and use less energy.
Commenting Jo said:
"The cost of energy is always a huge concern and with winter fast approaching I would urge local people to make sure they're getting the best deal.
"The website will help you switch if you're not getting the best deal and also has info on where you can go if you need a little extra help, or are struggling to pay your bills.
"Visit http://bit.ly/energysavings2012 if you're looking to reduce your energy costs and if you want to talk to someone face-to-face, the Citizens Advice Bureau outreach offices in Milngavie or Bishopbriggs can always help with a wide variety of issues."
