Interactive workshops handing out advice on how to save money on your energy bills
PEOPLE in Chellaston and Alvaston will have the opportunity to find out how to save money on their energy bills at two practical workshops.
Derby City Council's Home Energy Advice Team is offering residents in the two wards the chance to take part in an interactive workshop to help them to understand their energy use and reduce bills.
Booking is required for the one-off workshops, which are being held at Chellaston Library on Thursday, March 14, and at Alvaston Library on Thursday, March 21.
Both events will run from 5:30pm to 7pm.
Members of the team will provide free advice about low and no-cost home energy efficiency measures, monitoring energy use, renewable energy options and the support available.
Councillor Hardyal Dhindsa, city council cabinet member for planning, environment and public protection, said: "Residents are struggling to afford increasing energy bills.
"This workshop will be part of a wider project to help people bring their bills down.
"Previously, we've seen great success in a similar initiative undertaken in partnership with the Allestree and Normanton neighbourhood boards.
"I would urge residents to get involved and take advantage of the information and support available."
The workshops are part of a wider community energy project being delivered by the council's Climate Change Team.
The project also includes a community energy survey, which will look at energy issues within the two areas of Derby.
The results of the survey will be used to build a clear picture of energy efficiency opportunities, which will help to provide tailored advice and support.
To sign up for the energy workshops, which are being held as part of the council's low energy neighbourhoods project, call the team on 640810 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
