A group of teenagers appointed Climate Change Champions by the Assembly government in Wales are to help families pursue cheap energy rates.
As part of Energy Saving Week 2009 they will work in their local communities to encourage families to reduce their water consumption, travel to work on foot or by public transport and to get a home energy report from the Energy Saving Trust, reports the South Wales Echo.
Families will be encouraged to switch gas and electricity practices by using energy-saving light bulbs, while the home energy reports could shed light on how to reduce domestic bills by as much as £300.
Climate Change Champion Jordan Nicholls, 15, from Llandrindod Wells, told the paper: "The Energy Saving Trust challenge is a great way of making people think about how they can make small changes to reduce their carbon footprint."
Cavity wall and loft insulation is one of the best ways to lower energy bills and grants are available throughout the UK to help vulnerable homeowners pay for it and other measures.
