Big Energy Savings Week supported by Boston and Skegness MP Mark Simmonds
BOSTON and Skegness MP Mark Simmonds has expressed his support for the Big Energy Savings week.
Mr Simmonds said two third's of people will be thinking their energy bill will be higher this winter and with many living in colder homes than they would like.
The campaign which will give people practical advice on how they can check, switch and insulate to make savings on their energy bill.
Citizens Advice have also found that 62 per cent don't have the heating on as much and 18 per cent are not using some rooms in their home in a bid to cut the size of their energy bills.
Despite this only a quarter had checked with their supplier to see if they were on the best deal and just 16 per cent had changed to another energy company.
Mr Simmonds said "It is now, when the temperatures start to drop, that people in Boston and Skegness begin to worry about whether they will be able to afford their winter energy bill. That's why I am backing Big Energy Saving Week to make sure my constituents aren't paying more than they need to. The Big Energy Savings Week have a number of tips to help cut the price of energy bills and I would urge my constituents to take advantage of these to ease pressure on their household budgets."
