Big Energy Saving Month Campaign 202114th January 2021
The Big Energy Saving Month campaign is an annual opportunity to help consumers understand their energy use, cut their bills and get the financial support they are entitled to.
The campaign has three key strands:
- Educating consumers to check their energy costs and switch tariff or supplier if they are paying too much
- Spreading awareness of the advice and support available for consumers
- Ensuring that consumers can save money and energy by accessing discounts and implementing energy efficiency measures
We know energy bills are a real struggle for people and falling temperatures in the past week, alongside ongoing restrictions as a result of coronavirus means people will really be starting to feel the squeeze.
Figures released by the Scottish Government last year revealed 1 in 4 households in Scotland, over 600,000, find themselves in fuel poverty and official estimates suggest this could rise to 29 per cent of households as a result of the pandemic.
This issue is a real problem for those already struggling with energy bills, with inefficient and expensive heating systems or those who are unable to access discounts and support online.
The nationwide campaign will run from Monday 11 January to Sunday 31 January and encourages people to get energy advice, and focuses on five key consumer groups
• People on electric only heating
• People on prepayment meters
• People struggling with energy bills
• Those who frequently turn off the heating to save money
• People who can’t access deals and support online
Big Energy Saving Month is looking to raise public awareness of the simple changes people can make to help them save this winter.
