Once again we have seen the cap increased for energy costs, meaning we will all likely be paying more on our utility bills. We are also seeing worrying weather patterns that scientists believe are a reflection of climate change.
We can all take action in our homes that can help address both the above challenges, but getting good advice and meeting the right contractors can be a challenge. Also knowing what grants are available can be difficult.
That’s why Darley Dale Town Council has organised The Big Green Energy on Sunday 11th February from 11am to 3pm, at The Whitworth for all those that would like to get some advice as to what you can do in your home to save money!!
We have the following companies on hand on the day to help provide information and tips to help you save money and improve the energy efficiency of your home:
