Have you switched yet?

27 January 2016

Cheshire West and Chester Council’s collective energy switching scheme, ‘Ready to Switch?’ is now taking registrations for the latest round.

The scheme uses the combined purchasing power of residents to encourage energy companies to offer their lowest tariff. 

The latest round in October 2015 saw the best results yet with nine out of 10 of those registering able to save money; the average saving was in excess of £200.

It is free to register and there is no obligation to switch suppliers if the tariff offered doesn’t better your current one.

Simply register both your contact details and details of your annual energy consumption at www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/readytoswitch

Councillor Mark Henesy, Cabinet Member for Environment and Community said: “The Ready to Switch scheme has been an enormous success so far, with hundreds of households in West Cheshire benefiting from lower energy bills.

“If you’d like to be part of Round 11, registration is quick and simple, and because up to five households can register on one email address you can register friends or family members at the same time.” The registration period closes at midnight on Monday, 1 February. The following day a reverse auction will take place whereby energy companies are invited to place their lowest tariff bids for a variety of categories.

Following this auction all registrants will receive a personal offer by email or letter. If you do decide to switch the whole process is taken care of on your behalf.

If you have no access to the internet but would like to register please call 01244 977262 and leave a contact name and number and someone will return your call.
