Isle residents who are fed up of paying huge energy bills and who want to change their supplier have help at hand.

North Lincolnshire Council has teamed up with iChoosr, the UK’s leading provider of collective switching to help residents get a better deal on their energy bills.

With many tariffs coming to an end during April, and following a winter of price rises, it is the perfect time to secure a better deal for your gas and electricity and save around £190 per year.

Collective switching offers households the opportunity to sign up to a scheme that allows an intermediary to enter an auction with energy companies on their behalf, to secure a discounted energy price.

To register online visit www.northlincs.gov.uk/collective-switching or you can attend one of the registration sessions below, but remember to take your latest bill or annual energy statement.

Sessions take place at Epworth library on May 2 from 2pm to 5pm, and Haxey library on May 6, from 10am to noon.

Adam Copley, Warm Homes Officer for North Lincolnshire Council, said: “The scheme so far has been a huge success with over 500 residents registering. Many have commented on the huge savings they have made and how easy it is to switch.

“It makes sense with the continual rise in energy prices to try and get the best deal possible. The more people that register, the greater the savings are.

“It is easy to register. You can do it online at www.northlincs.gov.uk/collective-switching or you can attend one of the registration sessions we’ve organised. Remember to take your latest bill or annual energy statement along to the session.”
