If you think your energy bills are scary, this Halloween could be the time not to miss a trick and treat yourself to savings.

Nottingham City Council has partnered with local energy advice organisations to run a series of advice session across Nottingham. The events will be held at four market places across the city and everybody is welcome to attend.

Energy specialists from a range of local organisations will be on hand to answer questions and to help people think about how they could save money on their energy bills.  High energy bills are a big concern for households and as winter approaches it’s the perfect time to make sure you and your bills are prepared for what the colder weather brings us.

  • Monday 30 October – Sneinton Market 9am to 1pm
  • Wednesday 1 November – Hyson Green Market 9am – 2:30pm
  • Tuesday 7 November – Bulwell Market 9am – 4pm
  • Thursday 9 November – Bilborough Market 9am – 1pm

Come and speak to the team about a variety issues including fuel debt, switching supplier, saving energy in the home and accessing grants for energy efficiency works.  Many people could save hundreds of pounds a year on their energy bills by switching supplier and making small changes as to how they use energy in the home.

People hoping to switch energy supplier could consider Robin Hood Energy, the not-for-profit energy supplier set up last year by the City Council to offer affordable energy and fight fuel poverty across the region.

City Council Portfolio Holder for Energy and Sustainability, Councillor David Liversidge, said: “We want to support people in Nottingham to be more energy efficient and look for ways to lower their energy bills. It is also important that people understand what benefits they are entitled to and how to claim them.

I would encourage anyone who is struggling to pay their energy bills to seek help and advice and I hope these events help local people understand who to turn to for the right support. I’d like to thank Nottingham Energy Partnership, Advice Nottingham, Age UK and Nottingham City Homes for taking part in these events and sharing their expertise”
