Collective energy-switching scheme could cut fuel bills
Updated 9:37am Wednesday 5th March 2014 in News
AN energy-switching project is offering householders the chance to save money on their fuel bills.
St Helens Council has teamed up with five other Merseyside local authorities to promote the Switch Together, Save Together scheme, organised by local charity Energy Projects Plus.
It aims to cut the soaring cost of gas and electricity by using collective buying power to negotiate cheaper tariffs from energy suppliers.
Cllr Richard McCauley said: “This is a great opportunity to join together and collectively benefit from reduced energy bills.
“The last Merseyside collective switch showed that by joining together we can make a difference.
“It’s free and easy to join, and there’s nothing to lose. I would encourage everyone to join in and see how much they could save by collectively switching.”
Anyone can join, regardless of current supplier or payment methods.
Those who have never switched their energy supplier or who haven’t switched in the past 12 months are likely to benefit most.
Householders will be able to see how much they would save before they decide if they want to switch suppliers.
There is no obligation to switch.
