Save money on your energy bills

Energy bills can be nightmarishly expensive for students, especially in winter, writes Alice Smith, GUEST Communications Promoter.

Deciding whether to turn on the expensive central heating or to put on yet another jumper is almost a daily choice during Glasgow winters. But luckily, the university’s sustainability team are here to help.

Until the end of term, the Glasgow University Environmental Sustainability Team’s energy branch will be running bi-weekly energy reduction workshops to help you reduce the amount of money you spend on gas and electricity. These are informal sessions that will provide you with hints and tips to help you reduce your bills and your carbon footprint, without having to sit around shivering in the dark.

Feel free to bring your bills along to have them examined by our experts, and groups of friends and flatmates are welcome. Just make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity to save up to £200 on your annual energy bills.

Come along to a information session

The sessions will run from 4.15-4.45pm every Tuesday and Thursday in the Eco-Hub on Level 1 of the Queen Margaret Union.

They are free, there is no need to book, and there will be free tea, coffee and biscuits at every session (just in case the incentive of saving money on your heating wasn’t quite enough).
