Collective switching offered to Sutton people who want to save on their bills
Anyone frustrated with the price of their energy bills could save themselves money through a council-backed scheme.
People in Sutton are being given the chance to come together and change their energy bills through collective switching.
Sutton Council, along with other London boroughs, launched the Big London Energy Switch earlier this year. The scheme lets people who want to change their energy bills come together giving them bargaining power over the energy companies. The council then negotiates the best deal for the customers.
More than 26,000 customers saved, on average, £122 per year each after taking part in the first round of the switching programme earlier this year. Now people are being encouraged to register for the next round before midnight on October 15.
Councillor Jill Whitehead, chairwoman of Sutton Council’s environment and neighbourhoods committee, said: "The scheme has been a huge success. Councils are helping people to keep their homes warm more cheaply at a time when energy bills and fuel poverty are on the rise.
"I am pleased that we have been able to help so many residents."
Anyone who pays a household energy bill can take part in the Big London Energy Switch. To register your interest, go to www.biglondonenergyswitch.org.uk. For more information telephone 0800 0488112 .
