Energy Best Deal – Birtley – Monday, 24 March 2014
24/03/2014 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
The Gateshead Housing Company is offering tenants and leaseholders the chance to save money on their energy bills. The housing company’s latest ‘Energy Best Deal’ roadshow is on Friday, 21 March at the Gateshead Voluntary Organisations Council (GVOC), Gladstone Terrace, Gateshead from 10am to 12 noon.
Previous drop-in sessions have proved hugely popular with residents seeing potential savings of up to £140 from their annual energy bills by following simple, money-saving advice.
At the sessions, which the housing company are organising at venues around the borough based on local demand, tenants and leaseholders will be able to:
· Ensure they are receiving the best energy deal for their circumstances · Find out more about government energy efficiency schemes · Make energy efficiency savings around their home.
Neil Bouch, Director of Customers and Communities for The Gateshead Housing Company is encouraging people to attend the free sessions and start saving.
He said: ““People are increasingly worried about how they will pay their energy bills this winter.
“Some people face an unnecessary struggle because they are paying over the odds to heat their home or put the lights on.
“Through Energy Best Deal we are helping people seek out the cheapest deal; get to grips with the different tariffs and payment methods and explain what they can do if they’re in debt with their fuel company.
“We’re also helping people use less energy and explaining how they can make their home even more energy efficient.”
Residents wanting to book a free place on one of the sessions should call 0191 433 5357 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
The drop-in sessions complement the company’s existing Moving Forward training programme, which helps the organisation to engage with its customers in an informal environment.
