A safer and easier way to cut the cost of your energy bills

There’s still time left to register for Merseyside’s Collective Switch initiative - which saved residents an average of £212 a year on their energy bills.

More than 4,200 people took part in the last round, which saved residents a total of £205,000 on their energy bills.

The highest saving was £933, and a significant number of people were able to save more than £500 a year.

The Switch Together, Save Together scheme is organised by local charity Energy Projects Plus, together with the six Merseyside local authorities. It aims to reduce people’s energy bills by using collective buying power to negotiate cheaper tariffs from energy suppliers.

British Gas, Npower and Scottish Power offered special deals in the last switch, including the cheapest fixed tariff from British Gas.

Participants are welcome to switch to any tariff on the market to find the deal that’s right for them. The scheme aims to make it safer and easier to switch supplier, and advisors are on hand to offer free and impartial help every step of the way.

The registration period runs until September 8, 2014. It’s free to join and householders will be able to see how much they would save before they decide if they want to switch suppliers. There is no obligation.

Visit: www.LCRenergyswitch.co.uk to switch, or call the local Save Energy Advice Line on Freephone: 0800 043 0151. You can also get free and impartial help and advice about saving energy at home.
