Lincolnshire Energy Switch Scheme is back

Kicking yourself for being too late to take advantage of the energy switch scheme which is already saving cash for thousands of households in the county?

Well here’s another chance to join the exclusive club saving money on their gas and electricity bills.

The new Lincolnshire Energy Switch Scheme is now open for business, and households have until October 13 to register.

In previous schemes 4,700 Lincolnshire households have registered to join forces to get better deals from energy suppliers, making the county’s residents one of the biggest groups to tackle the energy companies for better tariffs.

In the most recent auction, held in June, the average saving per household to take up their offer was £234.

Councillor Rosie Kirk, City of Lincoln Council’s Portfolio Holder for Social Inclusion and Community Cohesion, says: “Collective switching schemes have been successful in saving households money on their energy bills.

“People want help to find a good deal on their energy bills and are comfortable seeking this help in a scheme promoted by their local council. Many who find the switching process baffling end up doing nothing and paying more than they need to.

“Collective switching offers a straightforward solution. The more people who register, the more interested the suppliers are in winning them as customers and so the better the deal they offer.

“Once offered a deal, you can choose whether to take it or not. It’s simple, but you have to register to have a chance to take up the saving so register today and tell your friends, family and neighbours to register too.”

To register for the next scheme, submit your details at www.lincoln.gov.uk/switch (if you do not have internet access, a friend or family member can do this on your behalf), call 01529 301990 (9am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday) or visit City Hall.

Once households have registered their interest, the energy suppliers will be invited to compete with their best offers. The scheme is free to join and there is no obligation to take up the winning supplier’s tariff offer.

Everyone is invited to register – whether you rent your home or own it, whether you are on dual fuel, electric only, pay monthly or quarterly or have a prepayment meter – and you don’t have to live in Lincolnshire. The scheme is open to all in the UK – so let your friends and relatives further afield know about it.
