Big Energy Saving Winter is a national campaign organised by Citizens Advice, Energy Saving Trust and the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy to help you cut your energy bills and get the financial support you’re entitled to.
Winter can often be problematic for fuel-poor households across the nation. The impact of a national lockdown during the winter months has resulted in an even higher increase in our domestic energy consumption and consequently higher energy bills. As many of us embrace the new ‘normal’ of working from home or find ourselves isolating inside, the heating is on more than usual, kitchen appliances are being used more often and we are more reliant on other electricals meaning our home energy usage is up higher than ever before.
With lots of helpful tools and advice available you can save money while keeping your home warm this winter.
