There is still a chance to see if Warwickshire County Council’s collective energy switching scheme – Warwickshire Switch and Save – could save you money!
Online registration for the scheme is still open and residents have up until 3rd July 2018 to accept an offer from the three gas and electricity providers that bid to provide the best deal for Warwickshire customers.
The most recent auction between competing energy suppliers in May resulted in very competitive tariffs, with average utility bill savings of £177 for Warwickshire residents.
There is still a chance to see how much you could save if you;
- Live in Warwickshire
- Are on a prepayment meter
- Receive your energy bill on paper
- Pay your energy bill monthly by direct debit online
- Get a Warm Home Discount
Through Warwickshire Switch and Save, residents could get a better deal on their electricity and gas from:
• So Energy, supplying 100% green electricity for residents who have online billing;
• E.O.N for residents who have paper billing; and
• Economy Energy for residents using pre-payment meters.
Registration and switching is free and there is no obligation. All you need is your last electricity and gas bill at hand.
Residents across Warwickshire have already started receiving their personal offer letters or emails letting them know if they will be able to make savings against their current energy deal and, if so, exactly how much money will be going back into their pockets.
In total, 75% of people who registered for the scheme in Warwickshire could save on their energy bills if they choose to switch.
One Leamington Spa resident contacted Warwickshire County Council to let them know how overjoyed he was when he recently received his personal offer highlighting a £401 saving on his electricity bill!
Welcoming the early success of this new scheme, Cllr Peter Butlin, Deputy Leader of Warwickshire County Council and Portfolio Holder for Finance and Property, 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.”
If you have not already signed up to save, it’s not too late to register and receive a free, no obligation quote.
