Council’s Energy Doctor scheme now offering water-saving devices

| November 2, 2023

Buckinghamshire Council has announced that its Energy Doctor scheme is now able to offer new water-saving devices to help low-income households save money on their water and energy bills.

The Energy Doctor scheme provides a range of resource-saving measures to eligible households. These now include:

  • Aerating shower heads
  • 4-minute shower timers
  • Cistern water displacement bags for use in non-dual flush toilets

Using an aerated shower head or shower timer is estimated to save £50 in terms of household annual water and energy costs. The cistern water displacement bags displace around 1 litre of water every flush which can achieve savings of approximately 4,800 litres per year.

Gareth Williams, Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Environment at Buckinghamshire Council, said: ‘We are committed to helping our residents save money on their utility bills while also reducing their carbon footprint. These new water-saving devices provided by the Energy Doctor scheme are an excellent way for households to do both.

We encourage all eligible households to take advantage of this opportunity and the other energy-saving measures available through the scheme, which include draught proofing, reflective radiator panels and LED light bulbs.

Further information about the Energy Doctor scheme, eligibility and how to apply can be found on the Buckinghamshire Council website.

Residents who don’t qualify for the Energy Doctor scheme may still be able to access some water-saving measures through their water supplier.
