It is a case of power to the people but which could be right for you..

Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch & Strathspey MP, Drew Hendry has organised a drop in event tomorrow (Friday) to help constituents get advice from the experts on energy-related matters.

These include offering advice on switching providers and providing assistance with managing costs.

He said one woman had already made an annual saving of more than £1100.

Organisations attending Mr Hendry’s event which will be held in Aviemore Community Centre include Warmworks, Home Energy Scotland, SSE, Scottish Gas, Scottish Power and Inverness, Badenoch & Strathspey CAB.

The drop in event is free and is open to all residents.

Mr Hendry said:“As the temperature’s continue to drop, it is vital that folk are fully equipped with the information they need around heating their homes, and I am grateful that so many organisations have agreed to come along, and be on hand to offer a range of energy advice.

“I am particularly pleased that USwitch will be attending, especially in light of new figures published by Energy UK, showing that consumers in the Highlands are some of the least likely to switch providers.

“As part of my ongoing campaign to encourage people to take charge of spiralling energy costs, I have seen one woman make an annual saving of £1,117 per year, whilst another saved £813 on her gas and electric.

“This drop in event also offers an opportunity for people to find out how they can make their home more energy efficient, get advice on grants and funding available, and how they might save money on energy bills."

The event is from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.
