Venue: City One Stop Shop, 29 Market Street, Wolverhampton. WV1 3AG
You'll be amazed by how many people are paying more for energy than what they need to. Checking what you're paying is the first step to potentially making a big saving.
Many people stay on the same tariff with the same energy supplier for years, simply because they don't know any better or think it's probably too much hassle to switch. By switching tariff or supplier, you could save hundreds per year on your energy bills. If you've never switched before, it's definitely worth shopping around and seeing what's out there.
Alvina Ali, Energy & Climate Change Officer comments,
energy supplier can be a great way for households to save money, with research showing that the majority of customers on non-fixed deals could save a significant sum of money. Remember check – switch – save.”
The best way to save is to simply take control of your energy consumption at home. The Energy Saving Trust estimates that the average family in the UK could save up to £130 a year and avoid emitting 500kg of carbon dioxide, just by taking some simple energy saving steps.
