Fenland households who signed up to the latest round of a free energy switching service will save an average of £250 off their annual energy bill.
Fenland District Council partnered with energy switching expert iChoosr for the Cambridgeshire Energy Switch, a scheme which aims to reduce residents’ gas and electricity bills through bulk buying.
Almost 100 households in the district signed up before an online auction between energy suppliers was held earlier this month.
The winners of the auction, SSE and Boost energy, will now supply energy tariffs to residents who accept their offers. The rates are exclusive to residents switching through the scheme.
Residents can still access the energy deals by signing up before November 28, at www.fenland.gov.uk/energyswitch
Councillor Mike Cornwell, the council’s portfolio holder for communities, said: “Now is the ideal time for residents, especially those on standard tariffs, to switch as wholesale energy prices are likely to continue to increase in the coming weeks.
“It’s not too late to register for the scheme and see if you can secure a good rate for the year ahead.”
