ANGUS Care and Repair have teamed up with Angus Council’s trading standards to help householders make informed decisions about switching their energy suppliers.
Already 32 people have accessed the service and showed potential savings of £5,383, and an average potential energy saving of £165 per household.
Angus Care and Repair manager, Judith Leslie, explained: “Many older and disabled people do not have access to a computer or internet to investigate possible savings.
“From our experience speaking with older peoples groups it does appear that older householders are less likely to have changed their energy providers. In addition it is often our older and disabled householders who spend more of their time in their home and therefore need affordable warmth.
“We would like to encourage our client group to come to us to investigate possible savings.”
Anybody interested in the service should contact Helen on 01307 463232. It is a completely free service for over 60s and disabled people of any age.
Information packs with leaflets are also available from council ACCESS offices.
