Energy Drop Shop Advice on Cutting Household Bills

Screen Shot 2015-09-22 at 12.44.47RESIDENTS looking to save money on their energy bills are invited to a special event this week.

The Energy Drop Shop is being hosted by Middlesbrough Environment City in partnership with NEA (National Energy Action) – A National fuel poverty charity.

Energy advisors will be on hand at the Cycle Centre at Middlesbrough Bus station on Friday, January 29 between 10am and 3pm.

Residents are invited to drop in for free, independent energy efficiency advice, an energy saving light bulb and one-to-one support with switching energy suppliers. Those attending are asked to bring along a recent energy bill.

Switching energy supplier now can make heating homes over the winter months much more affordable, with recent Government figures suggesting that some households could save more than £200 by switching their gas and electricity supplier.

Middlesbrough MP Andy McDonald will be joining the Energy Drop Shop to find out how Middlesbrough residents can make real savings at a time when household budgets are still under considerable pressure.

Middlesbrough Environment City (MEC) is an independent charity that promotes healthy and sustainable lifestyles using the principles of One Planet Living.

MEC works in partnership with Middlesbrough Council, other public sector organisations, community groups, businesses and local communities to run more than 40 projects each year.
