Last chance to switch and save

Thursday, November 09, 2017

big community switch

Residents living across Stockton-on-Tees have just over two weeks left to make big savings on their energy bills.
 
The Big Community Switch, offered by Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council in partnership with iChoosr, invites people to join together to form a single buying unit to secure cheaper energy bills.
 
Registration is open until 8pm on Monday 27 November 2017 at www.stockton.gov.uk/bigcommunityswitch and anyone who registers will receive a personal offer highlighting how much they can save. 
 
Last month SSE and Boost Energy competed against a variety of energy companies in an auction to become the energy suppliers for the customers that sign up for the switch.
 
Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, Councillor Mike Smith, said: “The Big Community Switch is a really easy and effective way of saving money on household energy bills.
 
“It is open to all residents, including those who rent or have a prepayment or key card meter so I urge everyone to sign-up to find out how much they can save.”
 
George Frost, iChoosr UK Country Manager, added: “It remains the fact that households which have not switched tariff recently could make significant savings by reviewing their energy contracts.  Council run collective switching schemes provide a safe and easy route for householders to engage with the energy market and will continue to do so.”

Anyone in need of support to help them register can contact the Stockton & District Advice and Information Service at Bath Lane, Stockton-on-Tees, TS18 2DS (open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm) or on 01642 633877.
 
Residents should have an annual energy statement or recent gas and electricity bill to hand when registering.
