Dawn Primarolo, Labour MP for Bristol South, is encouraging local residents to take advantage of free help with reducing the cost of energy bills.
Speaking after an awareness raising event with British Gas, Dawn said:
“It is worth contacting your energy supplier to ask whether they can help with the cost of installing energy saving measures such as loft or cavity wall insulation. At the same time you can ask your supplier whether you are on the best tariff.”
Consumers can compare tariff rates themselves on Ofgem’s website at www.goenergyshopping.co.uk and independent advice on saving energy is available from the Energy Saving Advice Service on 0300 123 1234.
