Big Energy Saving Week

In January we had our Big Energy Saving Week campaign which started on Monday 21 January 2019.

In its eighth year, the Big Energy Saving Week national campaign helps people reduce their energy bills and and get all the financial support they are entitled to. Citizens Advice Cheshire West held a number of events across Cheshire West and Chester throughout the week encouraging people to ‘Check, Switch, Save’.

We were raising awareness of how to switch energy supplier or tariff to get the best deal, access discounts and grants, and make homes energy efficient. We also helped people to find the support they need and promoting the Warm Home Discount scheme.  For more information, read our Energy Best Deal leaflet.

Our Big Energy Saving Week campaign has now finished but as we have a strong focus on energy you can still come and see us at one of our offices and arrange an appointment for top tips on how to check, switch and save.  Get advice on energy, debt and benefits and get information about the Priority Services Register.

If you feel comfortable to use the Citizens Advice price comparison tool to compare prices from different energy suppliers, you can do so at home.

Useful Information

Your energy supply

If you are having problems with your energy supply or want to find out how to get the best energy deal, visit the Citizens Advice advice pages.

Getting financial help

If you’re struggling to afford your gas and electricity bills, contact your supplier to discuss ways to pay what you owe them. Your supplier has to help you come to a solution. You should try to negotiate a deal that works for both of you. If you don’t try to negotiate with your supplier, they might threaten to disconnect your supply.
