Big Energy Saving Week starts today Monday 21 January 2019. This national campaign is designed to help people cut their energy bills and get the financial support they are entitled to.
#energysavingweek focuses on how you can save money on energy costs by switching energy supplier or tariff, and how to make your home more energy efficient.

The Smart meter tracks trends over days, weeks or months so when you make changes you can see the results.
A Smart meter is a great incentive to make the effort to change lots of little habits that can make a big overall difference to your energy consumption.
Small changes can accumulate to make a big difference. Once you have made sure your house is well insulated and doors and windows are draught proof, you can make savings by following our top ten energy saving tips:
