Energy ‘Best Deal’ advisors are set to help local people reduce their bills.
The Citizens Advice service for Hambleton, Richmondshire, Selby and Districts (CAHRS) is running best deal sessions throughout the winter months in a bid to cut fuel costs for hundreds of people.
Advisers will help people compare their gas and electricity costs, negotiate with providers and reduce how much energy they use.
Research last year revealed the three in ten people believe they will be unable to heat their homes to a comfortable level over the winter.
In many cases, people can save hundreds of pounds on their gas and electricity bills. Some people will be able to save money by switching to a cheaper deal with another supplier. Citizens Advice has estimated that as many as 4.7 million households in England haven’t switched their energy supplier for ten years.
People may also be able to cut costs by making their home more energy efficient - by having their boiler serviced or getting double glazing for their windows.

- Energy Best Deal is a project run by Citizens Advice and funded by voluntary contributions from energy companies, which this year contributed £1.4 million to fund it. Last year the scheme trained 5,900 professionals who work to support people with issues such as housing and health problems. This training enables them to pass on tips to the people they support who could also benefit from cutting their energy bills.
