Ever wondered why your power bills are so high?

It could be that you are using more power than is absolutely necessary, but don’t despair, help is on the way. There are some very simple ways of making substantial savings on power; you just need a few good tips to get started.

The Sus’d team at Hastings District Council has identified a number of simple, power saving tips which they will reveal at a free talk to be held in the Hastings and Flaxmere Libraries on Tuesday 31st July. It will be an informal get together, which will give you some ideas on how to save power and lower your costs using the ECCA Energy Wise programme.

Sus’d ambassador, Councillor Tania Kerr says “Saving money on power bills shouldn’t be seen as a chore; it can be as simple as making sure the last person out of a room turns the lights off. Other money saving tips which will be outlined include: how to save when washing and drying clothes; regulating the temperature of your hot water; and making sure that your fridge and freezer are set correctly.”

Tania Kerr says “Paying for energy is a big part of a household's annual budget but there are lots of things you can do to cut your energy bills - without compromising your lifestyle. The information to be presented won’t come from industry experts; but from passionate staff from the Sus’d team who just want to help you save money.”

‘How to Save Money on your Power Bill’ is a free talk by the Sus’d team which will be held in the Flaxmere Library at 10.30am on Tuesday 31st July and the Hastings Library at 5.30pm on Tuesday 31st July.
