Falkirk East MSP Angus MacDonald has given his backing to Energy Saving Week, which takes place from 24th – 28th October. The week is in its fifteenth year and will be focussing on households and how you can “Take back control of your energy bills”.
Commenting on the initiative, Mr MacDonald said:
“The average home can save up to £250 a year by being energy efficient and with the cost of energy bills on the rise, there’s no better time than now to take back control of your bills.
“Simple changes can make all the difference such as insulating cavities, checking that your fridge freezer door seals are working properly, install an insulating jacket for hot water tanks and remember to close your curtains at dusk.
“For those wishing for more information you can call the Energy Saving Trust Scotland on 0800 512 012 or by visiting the website: www.energysavingtrust.org.uk/Scotland.”
