Nottingham City Council is running drop-in energy advice sessions in April to help residents to get advice to tackle rising energy bills.

These free events will offer attendees a range of assistance, including energy saving advice, benefits advice and checks, boiler repair and replacement measures, and more. Alongside representatives from Nottingham City Council, partner organisations Age UK, Local Authority Energy Partnership and Marches Energy Agency, will also be attending to give their expertise.

The events will run in three locations across the city:

There is no need to book to attend these events, everyone is welcome to drop in at any point during each session.

Councillor Sally Longford, Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Energy, Environment and Waste Services, said: “As the energy price cap will increase up to 54% in April, I have no doubt that residents across Nottingham will be worried about the soaring cost of living. I’m pleased we’re able to support residents during these challenging times through these drop-in events, and I hope that attending will help to alleviate the anxiety that people may be feeling about their energy bills.

“While I encourage residents to come to these events to receive the advice on offer, I would also urge everyone who’s eligible to take advantage of our home energy efficiency improvement projects – such as the scheme to install solar panels on homes for free – which will offer longer term solutions to help with the cost of living, while also helping us make Nottingham a carbon neutral city. Get in contact with the team on 01156 667 298 or email to find out more about the options available.”
