* Between 1 Jul 2018 and 31 Dec 2018, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with uSwitch saved £447 or more.

Scottish households that make a switch of energy provider could be in line for further savings after the country's government announced plans to hand out power-saving gadgets valued at almost £50.

Home Energy Scotland, an organisation run by the national authority, will make digital electricity monitors and stand-by plugs available, with the resulting savings on fuel bills said to average £47 a year.

A campaign has been launched to promote the technology that is on offer to local people.

Douglas Sinclair, chair of Consumer Focus Scotland, says: "This new one-stop-shop for home energy advice will make it easier and quicker to get the right information and support on potential energy savings."

People may find using the gadgets as well as completing a switch of energy supplier does enough to make a noticeable dent in their home fuel bills.

Another tactic homeowners could use is to add insulation in order to reduce power consumption, a ploy that was recommended recently by a spokesperson for B&Q.
