Scheme promises to save residents £100 a year
6:00pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in News
A NEW scheme could save residents more than £100 a year on fuel bills.
“Collective switching” is a new way for communities to unite and use their collective strength to negotiate better deals and Warrington Borough Council is hoping to get residents signed up.
The UK’s first collective switch was organised by Which? magazine in Peterborough last year, and has since been carried out in various locations around the country. Residents have saved more than £100 on average, but savings as high as £892 have been recorded by one dual fuel customer in Greater Manchester.
Clr Russ Bowden, member of Warrington Borough Council’s executive board said: “It’s a question of strength in numbers, so we want as many Warrington households as possible to join this scheme. The more people sign up to our scheme, the better the deal we can hope to make.
“Government research shows that only one in five British households are on the lowest possible tariff. This scheme run by the council will take some of the hassle out of switching to the cheapest supplier. Let’s make Warrington a winner by working together on the big switch.”
Resident can sign up online by visiting: warrington.gov.uk/thebigswitch If you do not have access to the internet - you can ask a friend, relative or neighbour to sign up on your behalf or call 442919.
