Citizens Advice responds to Scottish Power price cuts
17 January 2012
Gillian Guy, Chief Executive at national charity Citizens Advice said
"Scottish Power has now made it a full house - it is pleasing to see that all of the big 6 energy companies have cut customer's bills in response to a drop in wholesale prices. We hope this goes some way to easing people's worries about high energy bills.
"This week we are helping people save more money on their energy bills through our advice campaign called Big Energy Week. Get tips and advice about cutting your fuel bills at www.bigenergyweek.org.uk."
