Stephen Gilbert, MP for St Austell & Newquay and PPS to the Energy Secretary Ed Davey, has given his support to the Big Energy Saving Week being organised by the Citizen Advice Bureau to help families in Cornwall and across the UK save energy and reduce their bills.

Big Energy Savings Week is a chance for people to learn how they can make their homes warmer and reduce their energy bills by making their property more energy efficient.

In addition to support from Citizens Advice Bureaus, people can get advice from the Energy Saving Advice Service (ESAS - 0300 123 1234) on how to reduce bills and make homes more energy efficient. It also gives details on eligibility for the Green Deal as well as Warm Front and other schemes to support people struggling with their energy bills.

Commenting, Stephen Gilbert said:

"Energy bills are a big worry for people in Cornwall but there is help available to make homes warmer and bills lower.

"Citizens Advice Bureaus can advise on any financial support that people might be entitled to and switching to cheaper energy providers is an important step to lowering bills.

"One of the problems we face is that many homes are not insulated properly, meaning energy is wasted. Thanks to Liberal Democrats in the Coalition Government, the Green Deal is launching this autumn to insulate homes without any up-front cost.

"The Green Deal is a unique scheme because the cost of the energy saving measures will be paid out of the savings made on the energy bill. That means people can make their homes warmer without any worries."
