Householders across Cornwall (and further afield!) are being encouraged to join forces to cut their energy bills through a new initiative called Community Energy Switch.
The collective switching service has been launched by the Cornwall-based charity (and Race Marshal) Community Energy Plus, which provides services to help householders in Cornwall reduce their energy use and ensure that they can afford to heat their homes. The charity is working with the national switching organisation energyhelpline to co-ordinate their collective switch and link into the group buying power of several other collectives taking place across the country at the same time.
Householders have until 1st March to register, after which UK energy suppliers will compete to offer the cheapest exclusive tariffs.
By joining the collective energy switch households could save an average of £221* a year, based on the savings from the initiative’s switching partner energyhelpline’s last collective switch.
Registration is free, quick and simple with no obligation to switch. Register online at www.communityenergyswitch.org.uk or call Freephone 0800 804 7247.
