Residents in Nottingham are being shown ways in which to generate cheap electricity from green sources and save money on their energy bills as part of Sustainable Energy Week.
Running from April 11th to the 16th, the event will see energy efficiency tips being provided to attendees of the Nottingham City Homes show home exhibition and the installation of Aspley's first solar panels.
The city council's main building will also be going green for the week as it lights up with energy saving LED bulbs.
Andy Vaughan, neighbourhood services director at the council, said: "Nottingham is already a leading city in energy efficiency, with 11 per cent of all heat and power used coming from a local generator."
He added: "The big picture is using new technology to secure a low carbon and affordable energy with prospects for developing new jobs and training opportunities in the growing green economy."
It is generally accepted that energy efficiency and new technology can generate cheap energy, but customers can also lower their gas and electricity bills immediately by comparing energy tariffs.
