With the cold season here to stay for a while, residents have another chance to sign up to save money on their energy bills.
Cambridgeshire County Council has teamed up with iChoosr, who are an independent service provider, for the second time this year, to provide local residents with the best energy deals.
The previous scheme which ran from August to November attracted over 800 residents across Cambridgeshire to sign-up, with those that accepted offers making an average saving of £230.
Cambridgeshire Energy Switch is a scheme that residents can sign up to, to get people cheaper energy tariffs. Many people are paying too much for their gas and electricity and haven’t changed suppliers in years, if at all. Residents are encouraged to register on the Cambridgeshire Energy Switch scheme to see if they can secure a good rate for the year ahead.
Cambridgeshire County Council’s Chair of Commercial & Investments Committee, Councillor Joshua Schumann said, “We welcome this scheme in Cambridgeshire, I would like to encourage as many residents as possible to take advantage and benefit from this energy switch.
We are always working with local partners and organisations to find the best cost effective solutions for county households.”
Taking part in the Cambridgeshire Energy Switch is free and without obligation. The more people that participate in the scheme the more likely people will be able to achieve cheaper energy prices.
The Cambridgeshire Energy Switch will hold an online energy auction on Tuesday 13 February 2018. The supplier who offers the cheapest tariff in the auction will be recommended as the new energy supplier to those who have registered with the scheme.
Residents will receive personal energy offers from 26 February and details of how much money they could save on their annual energy bill, before they decide if they want to accept the offer or not. Those who register for the scheme will have until 27 March to accept their energy offers.
