A scheme which aims to help households in Lincolnshire save money on their gas and electric bills by teming up to strike better deals with energy suppliers has re-launched.
The latest opportunity to join the Lincolnshire Energy Switch Scheme started today (Tuesday, December 2) and runs until Monday, February 2.
Almost 5,000 Lincolnshire households have registered to join forces to get better deals from energy suppliers.
In a recent auction, households that accepted offers saved an average of £234.
Households are again invited to register for the scheme, organised by Lincolnshire County Council and Community Lincs and administered by the UK’s leading collective switching expert, iChoosr Ltd.
To register submit your details at www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/switch.
If you don’t have internet access, a friend or family member can do this on your behalf or call the free phone number 0800 048 8439.
The registration number is open 8am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday.
Once households have registered their interest, the energy suppliers will be invited to compete with their best offers.
The scheme is free for households to join and there is no obligation to take up the winning supplier’s tariff offer.
All can register, whether you rent or own your home, whether you are on dual fuel, electric only, pay monthly or quarterly or have a prepayment meter. You don’t even have to live in Lincolnshire.
Coun Colin Davie, executive member for the environment at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Shopping around for a good deal on energy bills has never been more popular and understandably we all seek to make savings that can add up.
“Registering online or calling the freephone number is a simple solution to what can be a time consuming process of changing energy provider.
“Therefore we recommend residents choose this hassle free option which has no obligation. If you register, you’re offered a deal after the auction and it’s a simple choice then whether to take it or not.
“The more people who register, the more interested energy suppliers are securing them as customers and the better the deal they offer.
“But you have to register to have a chance to take up the saving so register today and tell your friends, family and neighbours about the scheme too.”
