With winter on the way, I would encourage all local residents to ensure they are taking advantage of free help and support with energy bills.
There are a number of simple steps that everyone should take to make sure they’re doing all they can to keep their bills down and their home warm.
One of the best ways to be energy efficient and keep your home warm is to insulate it (loft insulation can save up to £145 and cavity wall insulation can save up to £150 per year). Make sure you are on the best gas and electricity tariff for you, there are lots of deals and fixed prices to help control costs. Residents may also be entitled to extra financial support from the Government and their energy supplier if they meet certain criteria.
It is really important to be prepared for winter and I want all Rother Valley constituents to understand what help is available for them, and for their family and friends. To make sure you are energy efficient and keeping bills under control I would advise everyone to get in touch with their energy supplier to find out what support is on offer.
