2015 Energy Booklet now online

I am very conscious, talking to many residents, that energy costs and fuel are a real concern.

There is lots of help already out there but it can sometimes be hard to find and difficult to know who to turn to. Based on the positive reception last year, I was delighted to be able to organise 16,000 of my improved and updated Energy Guide.

The guide is designed to help you make your home more energy efficient and make you aware of what support is now available.

There is advice on how to get the best deal from your energy supplier and details about schemes ranging from the Government’s Green Deal to the new Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive.

Included is also a range of financial assistance to which you may be entitled.

At the end is a list of various organisations and how you can contact them ranging from the Citizen Advice Bureau to the Oil Buying Clubs. There is also advice to help you with savings with details about Credit Unions and our plans for a Tynedale Community Bank.

Now is the time to start thinking about how you can stay warm and save money this winter. I hope you find the booklet useful. It is being delivered all across Tynedale. However, you can access the online version here:
