Almost 2,000 Cheshire East residents have signed up to the Collective Energy Switching campaign since it launched last month.
The number of people interested in getting a better deal on their energy bills is rising each day as similar campaigns sweep the country. Cheshire East Council has joined forces with other local authorities as part of this campaign.
The energy provider offering the best deal will win our ‘collective custom’ during a reverse auction held on April 9. More than 35,000 households from the 50 local authorities involved have already registered.
People are being urged to register their interest by April 8 by either visiting: www.energytogether.co.uk or by calling 0300 123 5035. One person can register up to four other households through email and there’s no obligation to commit until after the auction is held.
Councillor Janet Clowes, Cabinet member in charge of health and adult social care, said: “We really need as many people as possible to sign up so that we can get the best deal when we go to auction in April.
“This is all about putting power back into the hands of people and beating the energy price rises that can cause so many vulnerable people to suffer fuel poverty during the harsh winters.”
