New ‘Saving Money, Keeping Warm’ workshops
Last month we had our first energy saving workshop in Liverpool run by Jimmy Pugh, the Project Development Co-ordinator from the charity National Energy Action (NEA).
In the first ‘Saving Money, Keeping Warm’ session in February, the group discussed different ways to save money, and how just a few changes can save a household up to £200 a year. This was followed by a quiz on how much energy different appliances in the home cost, where everyone who participated was given an LED light bulb, and the winning team even won a slow cooker!
During the next workshop, the group will be looking at how to reduce the drafts at home through different interactive activities. Jimmy will be staying on after the workshop to meet with people on a one-to-one basis to give advice and support on energy saving in the home.
The session was very informative and interesting! Following the session, I have made plans to meet with Jimmy on a one-to-one basis to discuss energy saving in my own home, and about switching energy providers."
