Have you considered reviewing your energy provider?

Have you thought about switching your energy provider, but not found the time to do it?

Ofgem and Calderdale Citizen’s Advice give really easy to follow support with Energy Best Deal and www.goenergyshopping.co.uk.

Come to one of our drop in sessions in March 2018 (see below for dates and venues), and we’ll help you find your options there and then, using an impartial tool.

You’ll  need to bring this information with you :

  • The name of your supplier and the tariff you are on
  • How much energy you used in the last year
  • How you currently pay for your energy
  • Your postcode

This information is on your bill and annual statement from your energy supplier – ring us if you’re not sure how to find it.

If you are on a pre-payment meter, you may not save as much by switching , but it may still be worth your while coming to the drop in.

If you’re not sure whether the drop in is for you , or want to know more please contact Liz Broadley on 07852 173723  or email Liz.broadley@nhpltd.org.uk
