How to reduce your household bills

As National Energy Week draws to a close, Julian Sturdy, Member of Parliament for York Outer, has produced a detailed document advising local residents on how they can reduce their household energy bills.
From advice on how best to switch energy providers, to information about Government-led insulation schemes, anyone who is concerned about energy prices can benefit from the advice contained within Mr Sturdy's energy booklet. Acknowledging that vulnerable constituents in particular struggle to identify the correct contact details for energy companies, the document also contains a range of helpful contact details and information.
In recent days, energy companies have started to reduce some of their tariffs, but for many people attempting to move to a less expensive deal can turn into a bureaucratic nightmare. As such any local constituents who would like to receive advice on the energy market should contact Mr Sturdy's office using the following details: Julian Sturdy MP, 1 Ash Street, York, YO26 4UR, 01904 784847, julian.sturdy.mp@parliament.uk. In addition, the document will be available to download from Mr Sturdy's website at www.juliansturdy.com from next week.
Launching the document, Mr Sturdy said:
"Whilst it is impossible to control the instability in energy markets across the world, and the unfortunate knock-on effect that such developments tend to have upon domestic energy prices here in the UK, I firmly believe that the energy market must be entirely transparent and accessible to consumers. Over the past couple of decades, energy prices have rocketed and ordinary households are all too often burdened by mounting bills simply to heat their homes adequately."
"As such I wanted to pull together all of the different insulation schemes available, and also information on how to change energy provider, into one clear, coherent and consumer-focused document. Indeed, I would urge any local constituents who are concerned about their energy prices to  get in touch with my office to request a copy of the document over the weeks and months ahead."
