What’s the best way to save energy at home, and reduce your energy bills? Are you experiencing Fuel Poverty? How does energy saving help the environment?

During the session, the Team will discuss Fuel Poverty (where more than 10% of the household budget is spent on energy), provide some top tips on how to have a more comfortable, energy efficient home, and cut energy bills while helping the environment.
