Big Energy Saving Month: Clackmannanshire Citizens Advice Bureau

Big Energy Saving Month

This year’s Big Energy Saving Month, which will run from  11 January to Sunday 31 January, seeks to help people save time, money and energy through everyday actions.

We know energy bills are a real struggle for people and falling temperatures in the past week, alongside ongoing restrictions as a result of coronavirus, means people will really be starting to feel the squeeze.

Figures released by the Scottish Government last year revealed 1 in 4 households in Scotland, over 600,000, find themselves in fuel poverty and official estimates suggest this could rise to 29 per cent of households as a result of the pandemic.

This issue is a real problem for those already struggling with energy bills, with inefficient and expensive heating systems or those who are unable to access discounts and support online.

We would encourage everyone to take a look at the simple changes you can make to help save energy, reduce your bills and access any entitlements that you may be due.

Visit the Clackmannanshire CAB page at https://www.clackscab.org.uk/news/big-energy-saving-month which rounds up what we’ll be doing and how people can get involved. We will also be posting from our Facebook www.facebook.com/ClacksCAB and Twitter www.twitter.com/clacks_cab accounts using #BESM21.

 

Yours sincerely,

Jonny Miller
