Energy Saving Week 6th-10th February

In cold weather it can be expensive to keep your home warm and lit. Whatever the time of year gas and electric costs can be hard to manage.

This year we are having Energy Saving Week from the 6th to the 10th February to help our customers reduce their energy use and the amount they need to pay.

Smart Energy GB – a nationwide scheme partnered with the National Housing Federation to educate people about the benefits of having a smart meter in their home.

  • Smart meters provide a live measure of how much energy you are using in your home and how much this is costing you.
  • You can have a smart meter whether you have a pre-pay or standard meters at home.
  • Smart meters are free and on average can help you save money.
  • Readings from the smart meter are sent directly to your supplier so you will only pay for what you use as you will only receive accurate and not estimate bills.
  • Smart meters use their own wireless system to communicate with your energy supplier so you do not need to connect them or use Wi-Fi.

You can contact your energy supplier to find out when they can supply you with your own free smart meter for your home.
