Households in the District of Blaby could make big energy savings as part of the new Blaby Switch & Save scheme, in partnership with iChoosr.
Blaby Switch & Save is part of the nationwide Collective Switching scheme, bringing together thousands of people from across the country looking for a better energy price.
Energy companies compete in the scheme by offering the lowest rate in an auction to registered users. The more people registered, the lower the price could be.
Auctions take place throughout the year with those who register receiving a free, no obligation offer from the successful energy provider(s) that have bid the most competitive rate in the auction.
Households choosing to take up the offer will have their new provider organise the transfer, making it an easy and smooth process.
John Richardson, Strategic Director at Blaby District Council, said: “We’re delighted to launch Blaby Switch & Save and be part of such a successful scheme which has seen over 325,000 households nationally register for the chance to reduce their energy costs.
“Moving energy suppliers can be a long and difficult process, meaning some stay with their current provider despite continued price rises. We hope that this scheme gives many residents a hassle-free opportunity to save themselves a lot of money on their energy bills.”
Blaby District Council’s Resident Support officers and partners Supporting Leicestershire Families will be promoting the service to the most vulnerable families in the district to encourage them to keep their energy costs as low as possible.
