Island homes – save money on heating!

Paying too much for your heating? Islanders can come along to a Big Energy Saving Week event to hear how to save on heating bills.

Isle of Wight charity The Footprint Trust are holding Big Energy Saving Week from 22nd – 26th January. Footprint Trust’s energy team help people lower bills through reaching better deals, accessing grants and make small changes to keep healthy and warm over winter. On average the Footprint Trust saves householders around £200 per year on their utility bills. In the last 3 months nearly £40,000 has been saved!

Supported by the Citizen’s Advice Bureau, The Trust are holding a week of training, guidance talks to struggling families in children’s centres and public events in Freshwater and Newport.

Members of the public can come and chat with the Footprint Trust at Our Place, West Wight Sports & Community Centre, Freshwater on Tuesday 22nd January at 10am-12pm or Foodbank Cafe at Church on the Roundabout, Newport on Friday 25th at 10am-12pm.

“Big Energy Saving Week gives Island residents an opportunity to cut their household heating bills. We also offer free home visits, which saves the average home £200. Give our team a ring on 822282 to book or email for further details on our events.”
