1. Big Energy Week

    Big Energy Week is an advice campaign coordinated by Citizens Advice Bureaux (CAB) to help consumers spend less on heating their home.

    Rising fuel bills are stretching household finances and people are looking for ways to save money on their energy bills.  Leatherhead and Dorking CAB will give practical advice and help throughout Big Energy Week (16-21 January 2012) to help people cut their fuel bills and get all the financial support they are entitled to. Please visit the CAB stand in Leatherhead in the Swan Centre on 17th January 2012 for more information.

    CAB Manager Anne Haigh says that more and more people are coming to them for advice on how to spend less on their fuel bills.  During Big Energy Week the CAB want to tell people that help is at hand and that there are things they can do  to cut their fuel bills. For example people should  speak to their energy supplier to check that they’re getting the best deal and are on the cheapest payment method – and save energy by insulating their home – most  energy companies are offering free and/or discounted insulation.

    You could save more by switching energy suppliers and an accredited switching website can help you do this. Plus it’s important to check that you are getting all of the benefits and tax credits that you’re entitled to – as you could be missing out on money that could make pay it easier to pay your fuel bill.

    You can pick up a leaflet with tips and advice on cutting your fuel bills from Leatherhead and Dorking CAB.

    A new website – www.bigenergyweek.org.uk – is full of tips on how to cut your energy bills.  And as part of Big Energy Week there will be events up and down the country where people can get practical advice on how they could spend less on heating their home.
