Still time to cut your fuel bills this winter
10 December 2012
Citizens Advice responds to E.ON price increase
Citizens Advice Chief Executive Gillian Guy said:
"With the other big energy companies putting their prices up already, this increase is unlikely to come as a shock to E.ON customers but it will be just as unwelcome.
"There is still time for people to take steps to cut their bills before the winter really starts to bite. You can shop around for a better deal and check you are getting all of the financial help you're entitled to. Households can save around £160 each year by insulating the loft and cavity walls of their home and given that there are offers and discounts available on insulation, now is the time to do it."
