Created on 22/05/2019 @ 12:09

Newtown-based Citizens Advice Powys is urging local residents to monitor their energy bills.

The charity, which provides free advice to people, said it was offering support to help keep energy bills low.

Angela Morris, Citizens Advice Powys Energy Adviser said: “Getting support and advice on keeping your energy costs down can be a lifeline.  That’s why we’re here to offer free, independent energy advice and support on ways to reduce your costs.

"Switching your tariff or supplier is normally the quickest and most effective way to bring your costs down, but you can also modify your home and change your habits.” 

“We are encouraging people to take action now and get their energy savings in place.”

Here are some ways Citizens Advice Powys can help:

Check your meter and bills regularly to make sure they’re the right amount.

Switch help you switch to a different tariff or supplier that’s better value for money and make immediate savings.

Save energy by giving you energy saving ideas like turning appliances off and making sure walls and lofts are well insulated. 

Negotiating any energy and water debts.

“We will also suggest further cost-cutting measures people can adopt, depending on their circumstances.

“This could include making sure their home is well insulated so it’s energy efficient, or checking if they’re entitled to benefits, grants such as NEST and Health Through Warmth or discounts like the Warm Home Discount - a £140 rebate from their supplier.”
