There are just days left to join the Lincolnshire Energy Switch Scheme – and potentially save hundreds of pounds on your winter energy bills.
The autumn sunshine may be warming our days but the cold weather is just around the corner and making sure your energy bills are as low as possible is a priority for many householders.
So why not switch and see if you could save hundreds of pounds this winter?
But time is ticking to do so and residents and businesses need to register by 11pm on Monday October 12 at www.n-kesteven.gov.uk/home/energy-switch/119102.article.
Or if you’re not able to register online, you can register offline until 5.30pm on October 12 at your local council or by calling 0800 048 8439.
Households in the county that have already switched have collectively saved over half a million pounds between them to date.
Anyone can register, whether you rent your home or own it and all that is required is your annual gas or electric statement or bills covering the last 12 months to hand.
Once registered energy suppliers will then be invited to compete with their best offers at an auction.
Offer letters stating the potential savings will be then be sent to your address or by email and you could be saving hundreds of pounds with lower bills to pay.
It’s open to all energy users, whether you are on dual fuel, electric only, pay monthly or quarterly or have a prepayment meter.
There is no obligation for householders to accept their personal offers, but if they do it’s easy and straightforward and the new provider will take care of the whole process.
The scheme is organised by Boston Borough Council, City of Lincoln Council, East Lindsey District Council, Lincolnshire County Council, South Kesteven District Council, North Kesteven District Council and West Lindsey District Council and is administered by the UK’s leading collective switching expert, iChoosr Ltd.
Karen Lond, lead officer for the councils said: “It’s a great time to look at switching energy providers ahead of winter to see if you could save a tidy sum.
“Winter bills can be a huge outgoing for many families and individuals so why not switch and see if you could lessen the burden?
“There’s no obligation to switch but simply taking the few minutes to register could mean an offer of a lower tariff and you being hundreds of pounds better off in the long run.”
