Householders urged to switch-on to save on energy bills

Leamington Editorial 29th Aug, 2018   0

RESIDENTS in Warwickshire are being urged to team-up to help cut down on their energy bills.

Warwickshire County Council’s collective energy switching scheme – Warwickshire Switch and Save – is preparing to open registration.

Those who sign up will receive offers which could mean average annual savings of nearly £180 on their utility bills.

In the latest scheme providers offered residents cheaper rates through a range of contracts including So Energy which supply green electricity for residents with online billing, E.O.N for those with paper billing and Economy Energy for residents using pre-payment meters.

Users can either register their interest online or go to a ‘Bring your Bill’ event which are taking place around Warwickshire –

at Stratford Library on September 18; Leamington Library on September 21; Rugby Library on October 3; and at Shire Hall in Warwick on October 2 and November 13. Sessions run from from 9.30am to 2.30pm.

County deputy leader Coun Peter Butlin said: “This is fantastic news for residents in Warwickshire and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to work with partners and other organisations to improve the quality of life for all, particularly some of our more vulnerable residents who worry about the costs of heating their homes.

“Some residents will be paying too much, particularly if they haven’t switched supplier for a while, so I’d encourage everyone to sign up and see what offer they receive. Don’t delay, sign up today.”
