Energy saving tips for Southend families

First published in Echo News

FAMILIES can get free energy saving tips this week.

South Essex Homes, which manages Southend Council’s housing stock, will be offering free advice on how to save energy at drop-in sessions around the borough.

 

Tomorrow, the energy officer will be at Asda, in North Shoebury Road, Shoebury, from 10am until noon, and at the Store House, in Coleman Street, Southend, from 1.30pm to 3pm.

On Friday, a final session will be held at Cafe@theSquare, in Cluny Square, Southchurch, from 10am until 1pm.

The energy officer will also visit schools during the afternoon school run to speak to parents.

Daniel Greenwood, project planning and energy team leader for South Essex Homes, said: “As an organisation, South Essex Homes is dedicated to helping tenants minimise their energy bills by getting on the best tariff for them and by developing more energy efficient habits.

“We appreciate that these messages can be difficult to convey – so rather than expecting people to come to us for help, we decided to get out into local neighbourhoods to deliver our expert advice directly to residents.”

I wonder how many people will turn up to see how they can be helped but there will be some who go to complain. So good luck Dan and team.

Maybe if southessex homes got rid of some of its rubbish storage heaters, that would help.

Don't know how people are going to cope financially once we get real cold weather .. My gas works out £65 a week and I hardly have it on .. I reckon a lot more people will be ditching central heating and opening up their fireplaces to burn anything they can just to keep warm !!
