Energy Saving & Help with Fuel Costs

Some Nevill Good Neighbours volunteers recently attended an excellent workshop run by Citizens Advice and East Sussex County Council. We received a great deal of useful information on using less energy, getting help with fuel costs, and spottong signs of fuel poverty. If you would like the complete set of slides, email us and we will send them to you.

Here is some of the advice that was shared:

  • its generally best to stay on your current tarrif
  • submit regular meter readings
  • use a timer and radiator thermostats to control your central heating
  • keep the rooms you use at 18 degrees Centigrade or above
  • ESCC are providing Winter Warmth Packs
  • they are also creating and publicising Warm Spaces
  • some households will be eligible for a Warm Home Discount
  • beware of scams
