An initiative that’s sat to save residents hundreds of pounds a year in energy bills was launched last week by Hastings and Rye MP Amber Rudd.
The launch of the ‘Big Energy Savings Network advice clinic’ was held at Hastings library on February 6.
Representatives from the Department of Energy and Climate Change are helping hundreds of residents across Sussex save money by switching tariff or supplier and getting access to free services provided by the County Council and Energy Companies.
Regular free clinics to advise people what’s on offer will be held at the library and various locations around the town.
Richard Watson from Energise Sussex Coast (ESC) said: “So far we have referred 20 local residents to the Winter Home Check service worth £200, along with free boiler replacement and free insulation schemes, and a scheme for EDF customers who can get a new cooker, fridge or washing machine if they are struggling with bills and fuel debt.”
Amber Rudd said: “I am delighted by this fantastic initiative to help residents save substantial sums from their energy bills. I very much hope that as many people as possible will come to one of the regular energy clinics.”
