    Local residents in Northampton can pop along to energy saving drop-ins and get free advice and help to reduce fuel costs.

    The Northamptonshire Energy Saving Service (N.E.S.S.) drop-ins will offer free independent advice about lowering fuel costs and keeping warm during the colder weather.

    Energy advisers at the drop-ins can check if residents are getting the best deal on an energy saving website and whether they are on the cheapest tariff. They’ll also be providing energy saving tips, giving away small energy saving devices and talking about help available to insulate resident’s homes.

    The drop-ins will take place on:

    • Saturday, 2 March at the Environmental Expo at the Guildhall, Northampton
    • Monday, 4 to Friday, 8 March, 10am -12.30pm at the Community Law Service shop,  30 St. Giles Street, Northampton
