Brentwood Borough Council is inviting residents to sign up to a mass energy switch scheme to save money on their fuel bills this winter.
The Essex County Council scheme run in partnership with iChoosr and supported by local councils is aimed at bringing large groups of residents together to switch energy providers in order to save money.
Energy companies will then bid to offer the lowest tariff to customers. Residents have until February 14, 2017 to register their interest in switching energy providers – without any obligation to change providers. Once registration closes, energy providers will bid against one another to offer the best prices.
There’s no cost to register and it is a completely free, easy, safe and secure way to cut energy bills without wasting time hunting for the best offer.
Anyone who pays an energy bill can register without any obligation. As well as homeowners, this includes tenants and customers on pre-payment meters. Small and medium sized businesses will also be assisted through energy purchasing advice.
Brentwood Borough Council’s Chair of the Community, Health and Leisure Committee, Councillor Keith Parker, said: “We fully support this scheme and we want to do what we can to help residents and businesses to keep their energy costs as low as possible and to save money.
It’s a great opportunity for busy people who do not have the time to hunt around for the best offer. If you do register for the Energy Switch you are not obligated to switch providers.
