Cheshire West and Chester Council's collective energy switching scheme known as 'Ready to Switch?' is now taking registrations for the latest round.

cheaper energy

The scheme uses the combined purchasing power of residents to encourage energy companies to offer their lowest tariff. The results of the most recent round in February 2015 saw the best results yet, with nine out of ten of those registering able to make a saving.

It is free to register and there is no obligation to switch suppliers if the tariff offered does not offer savings compared to your current deal.

To register for Round 9, enter your contact details and details of your annual energy consumption at www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/readytoswitch

The registration period closes at midnight on Monday, May 18. The following day a reverse auction will take place whereby energy companies are invited to place their lowest tariff bids.

Following the auction all registrants will then receive a personal offer by email or letter. If you decide to switch, the new provider will take care of the whole process.

Georgina Patel, the Council's Energy and Carbon Reduction Manager, said: "The Ready to Switch scheme is a fantastic opportunity for our residents to save money on their energy bills. The average saving in our most recent round was £236."

"Registering for the scheme is quick and simple and because up to five households can register on one email address, you can register friends or family members at the same time."

Registrations can also be made by telephone by calling 01244 977262 and leaving a contact name and number
