Energy bills and saving money

Did you know there’s a local free service you can trust to help you make changes to your energy use, to save you money and help you keep warm? It’s called the South Yorkshire Energy Centre. They can give you advice and tell you about their ‘Switch’ campaign which gets cheaper prices for gas and electricity by local people coming together.

Call the centre or go along with your fuel bills – they have a regular drop-in Thursday mornings.

You can also check with Money Advice Service if you're wasting money on gas or electricity bills. Energy bills can be expensive, but there are a few things you can do to keep your costs as low as possible (for example you could save £200 per year by switching gas and electricity supplier).

You may get a Cold Weather Payment if you’re getting certain benefits. You’ll get a payment if the temperature in your area is recorded as, or forecast to be, zero °C or below for 7 consecutive days.

The Energy Saving Trust provides free, independent, expert advice on saving energy in your home. You can contact them online or by telephone.

You can find out more about making your energy bills affordable on the Sheffield City Council website. You can also find out how to register for Sheffield’s next Big Switch, where you can save money by collectively switching energy provider (shopping around to potentially negotiate an even better deal).
