North East Connected

Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

LOOKING to cut household energy bills and keep cosy this winter?

Then local charity Middlesbrough Environment City (MEC) have just the bill-busting event you’re looking for.

The advice session takes place at Middlesbrough Cycle Centre this Friday, December 8.

MEC will be helping people to compare their current energy deal with the rest of the market and help them to switch to a cheaper deal.

Money saving advice will also include tips on staying warm and cosy during the winter months.

MEC Affordable Warmth Officer Amanda Martin said: “The cold has really crept up on us in recent weeks and it looks like it’s here to stay.

“This is the time to make sure you are not over-paying on your energy bills and shop around for a cheaper energy deal.

“You might save a little or you might save a lot but doing a comparison with us is an easy way to find out.

“There is no harm in looking.”

Advisors will also look at other ways to get help such as the Warm Homes Discount, help available to replace broken boilers and the Priority Services Register which can provide additional support to a wide range of people, for example a password protection scheme or bills in alternative formats.

Those attending are asked to bring along current energy bills or other information to help advisors make a comparison.

The MEC money saving advice session takes place at the Cycle Centre inside Middlesbrough Bus Station on Friday, December 8 from 9.30am to 4pm.
