Big Energy week Monday 16 - Saturday 21 January 2012

Rising fuel bills are crippling household finances and people are looking for ways to save money on their energy bills.

To help consumers spend less on heating their home Citizens Advice across the UK is coordinating an advice campaign called Big Energy Week (16-21 January 2012) which will see thousands of people across the country get practical help and advice to cut their fuel bills and get all the financial support they are entitled to.

Citizens Advice Scotland’s Head of Policy Susan McPhee said: “Increasing numbers of Scots are suffering from the impact of rising energy prices and need advice on how to spend less on their fuel bills. While we continue to help people on a daily basis – there is a real need to reach out to more people who are struggling and Big Energy Week will be a chance for us to do that.”

As part of Big Energy Week there will be events up and down the country where people can get practical advice on how they could spend less on heating their home. There will also be advice leaflets available from every Citizens Advice Bureaux, and a website – (link no longer available) full of tips to cut your energy bills.

Big Energy Week is supported by consumer organisations such as Consumer Focus and Which?, charities, the Government, energy suppliers and switching websites.

Big Energy Week was an outcome of the Energy Summit on 17 October 2011.
