Milton Keynes residents urged to look for the best energy deals
Residents in Milton Keynes are being urged to look for the best deal in terms of energy suppliers and also help older relatives or neighbours find a better deal as part of the Big Energy Saving Week, a recent news report has been able to find.
Fresh research has indicated that homeowners in Milton Keynes could save £2.3 million a year on their energy bills, with many blaming their partners and children for wasteful habits. For this reason, the Big Energy Saving Week campaign this year urges householders to help those elderly people who need support to winter-proof their energy bills.
More than 40 per cent of people with an elderly friend or relative said they were unsure on how to help an elderly person switch, and almost two thirds (65 per cent) of these people believe their elderly friend or relative cannot switch because they don’t know how to use the internet.
Philip Sellwood, chief executive of the Energy Saving Trust, said: “What’s most concerning is that a fifth of the people we spoke to (20 per cent) said they were aware an elderly person they look after has fallen behind or been unable to pay their energy bills.
“We’re urging sons, daughters, friends, neighbours and even older people themselves to help each other, or someone they know, to check and make sure they are on the best deal online or over the phone. It could make a real difference this winter.”

Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.
