Farmers and householders can potentially save money on utility bills and the Consumer Council can show them how, when it attends the Clogher Valley Agricultural Show on Wednesday 30 July.

The organisation also plans to offer free independent advice to farms to help ensure they aren’t paying more for water than they have to.

Graham Smith, Consumer Council Interim Head of Policy (Water) said; “We’ll be on hand with information for householders, farms and businesses on what to do if they want to switch energy suppliers and how to complain if the service is not what it should be.

“The Clogher Valley Agricultural show is a great opportunity for us to give face to face advice to consumers and we are particularly keen to speak to farms regarding water efficiency, bills and allowances.

Graham continues; “Over the past 12 months the Consumer Council has helped return £345,214 to farms and businesses as a result of investigations into billing issues, leakages, inaccurate meters or discovering that they were not receiving the appropriate water allowance. The domestic water allowance for example is worth over £500 each year and can be back-dated up to six years,” said Graham.
