Need help with your winter fuel bills? Then come along to one of our free energy advice surgeries taking place in Wyre Forest.

Energy experts Act on Energy will be back to offer impartial advice to help keep you warm and well on Wednesday 26 September at Kidderminster Library from 9.30am to 12.30pm, followed by Bewdley Library at 1.30pm to 4.30pm. The experts will also visit Stourport Library on Tuesday 2 October from 1.30pm to 4.30pm. 

The team will be talking about a range of energy issues including: making your home more efficient, understanding your gas and electricity bills, switching tariffs, advice on heating systems, information about grants for insulation and boilers, and advice on smart meters.

Additional energy advice surgeries roll into November and December. For further dates and venues please visit

Councillor Ian Hardiman, Cabinet Member for Housing, Health and Wellbeing said:

“It’s staggering that in some British homes, one third of the heat produced by central heating systems is lost through the roof, walls and windows. This means that, in a poorly insulated home, £1 out of every £3 is wasted.”

“These free sessions are a great opportunity to talk with experts about the many ways you could save money on your energy bills.”
