Local people can save money with two events at Huntingdon Library and Central Library, Cambridge, as part of Big Energy Saving Week.
The campaign, taking place from 31 October - 6 November 2016, aims to help people cut their fuel bills and get all the financial support they are entitled to. The week focuses on raising public awareness of how to switch energy supplier or tariff to get the best deal and make homes energy efficient.
At the events, which are based in the Adult Learning and Skills Centres in the libraries from Monday 31 October to Friday 4 November, Cambridgeshire County Council staff will be able to provide advice and show people a range of online tools to help them save money. This includes how to use and register for Cambridgeshire Energy Switch to change energy suppliers. Everyone is welcome to come along, but they will need to bring their latest energy bills with them.
This is the sixth Big Energy Saving Week and is a partnership between Citizens Advice, the Energy Saving Trust and the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy with the support of numerous organisations, charities and companies. Cambridgeshire County Council's Adult and Learning Skills team are a "˜bronze' partner and are working closely with the Citizen Advice Bureaus in Cambridge and Huntingdon.
Tania Hurst Wells, Project Manager at Cambridgeshire County Council said: "Lots of people could save money on energy by using online tools to reduce their bills and also learn how to make their homes more energy efficient and warm."
