Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Help is at hand for house­holds con­cerned about win­ter fuel bills.

En­ergy Best Deal, which is run by the Cit­i­zens Ad­vice Bureau and Ofgem, is funded by en­ergy sup­pli­ers and pro­vides help to re­duce the en­ergy bills of the poor­est house­holds across the coun­try.

Sue Chan and San­dra Joe run the En­ergy Best Deal ses­sions in Ash­ford and Ten­ter­den.

Sue said: “Peo­ple are in­creas­ingly wor­ried about how they will pay their en­ergy bills. Some peo­ple face an un­nec­es­sary strug­gle be­cause they are pay­ing over the odds.

“Through En­ergy Best Deal we are help­ing peo­ple seek out the cheap­est deal; get to grips with the dif­fer­ent tar­iffs and pay­ment meth­ods and ex­plain what they can do if they’re in debt with their fuel com­pany.

“We’re also help­ing peo­ple use less en­ergy and ex­plain­ing how they can make their home more en­ergy ef­fi­cient.”
