Mendip District Council has launched a campaign to help residents reduce their energy bills and carbon footprint.
The Somerset Energy Saver is a free, online hub with advice for residents on how to make energy-saving changes to their home.
With energy prices soaring, the campaign helps to raise awareness of the range of measures available – whether through small, free-of-charge changes, or bigger adjustments to properties, such as installing different types of insulation and exploring alternatives to oil and gas heating.
It provides information on financial assistance available to eligible residents in Mendip, to help make the bigger energy-saving measures to their home. It also offers advice on Energy Performing Certificates (EPCs) and provides answers to commonly asked questions.
Cllr Richard Pinnock, Portfolio Holder for Housing Services, said: “The launch of the Somerset Energy Saver campaign has come at a hugely important time, with energy bills on the rise and the cost of living a worry for many.
“Whether residents are looking for some quick tips to save them money, or to make more significant changes to their homes, Somerset Energy Saver provides a valuable hub of information.
“I would recommend that anyone looking for ways to reduce their energy bills should visit the website and learn more about the changes you can make.”
For more information on the campaign, please visit the Somerset Energy Saver website.

Trained advisors from the Centre for Sustainable Energy will be on hand to offer free advice on energy bills, home insulation or dealing with energy debt, so feel free to just pop by.
