Lichfield Council supports Big Energy Saving Week 2020

Monday, 20th January 2020

LICHFIELD District Council is using this year’s Big Energy Saving Week to highlight its energy advice line – Warmer Homes, Greener District.

Big Energy Saving Week is running from 20 to 26 January 2020. This is the national campaign to help people cut their fuel bills and get all the financial support they are entitled to.

This is the eighth Big Energy Saving Week, which is a partnership between Citizens Advice, the Energy Saving Trust and the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy with the support of numerous organisations, charities and companies.

This year Lichfield District Council is urging its residents who are struggling to heat their homes, to call its affordable warmth service – Warmer Homes, Greener District – for advice on how to reduce energy bills and what energy-saving measures are available.

The team of advisors offer Lichfield District residents over the phone help for free, and can even complete energy price comparisons and liaise with energy suppliers on behalf of their callers.
