Cheshire East residents are being urged to beat energy price rises by joining the ‘Collective Energy Switching’ campaign giving people a better deal on their household energy bills.
With energy bills continually on the rise the Collective Energy Switching campaign aims to help tackle the problem.
Sign up – for free – before April 8. The more people who do, the better deal they will receive. Cheshire East is hoping to smash its target of getting 7,000 households to sign up.
So how does it work? Cheshire East Council will hold an on-line auction on April 9, and the energy companies who make the lowest bid will win your custom. People are not obliged to commit at this stage.
Councillor Jamie Macrae, Cabinet member in charge of prosperity and economic regeneration, said: “This campaign is open to everyone and the more people we get to sign up, the bigger buying power we will have to drive down energy bills.”
“The provider offering the best value will win the business and the more people who sign up to the scheme, the better buying power and lower prices we can get.”
To sign up log on to: www.energytogether.co.uk and fill out a short on-line application or call 0300 123 5035. As well as registering yourself you can register up to four other households.
