More than 80 people came through the doors of the Energy Roadshow in Wooler last week.
Listening to representatives of Warm up North, National Energy Action and Community Action Northumberland (CAN), locals learned about a wide range of energy and money-saving initiatives, as well as renewable heating alternatives at the event, funded by Northern Gas Networks.
“We had queues of people for energy advice and free energy monitors,” said Christine Nicholls, from CAN. “Equally popular were the opportunities for switching energy suppliers – easier than many people thought.”
The energy monitors were provided through the Community Action Partnership, a joint initiative between NEA and British Gas aimed at developing a grass-roots approach to alleviating fuel poverty in communities.

Tom Bell, head of social strategy at Northern Gas Networks, said: “We’re delighted that the Energy Roadshows have been such a success.
“Raising awareness about the simple ways that people can save energy and money on their fuel bills is really important to us and we’re really pleased to be able to support such a fantastic initiative.”
