With the news this week that British Gas is to raise its dual fuel prices by 9.2 percent from November 23, is this the time to change suppliers or to join a Collective Energy Scheme? (see our article 20th August)

Cheshire West and Chester Council has joined forces with 11 councils across the UK to create a Collective Energy Scheme, called Ready to Switch? where residents are able to combine their purchasing power and bulk-buy their energy as a group, enabling them to negotiate with providers for cheaper energy bills.
The 'Ready to Switch?' scheme will make it easier for people to switch energy provider and participants can expect to see big savings of between £60 and £200 a year.
The scheme will work by means of a reverse auction where energy suppliers will be invited to bid the lowest price to supply energy to all those signed up for the scheme. Offers will then be sent out to participating residents who can then decide whether they want to switch to the new deal. There is no obligation to accept the offer.

Registering for the free scheme is easy

You will need to provide your contact details, the name of your supplier and details of your current energy usage and tariff so have a copy of your latest fuel bill available.

No access to internet or email?

You can register up to five households on the same e-mail address. Why not help out a neighbour or friend who does not have access to the internet or email, but wants to participate?

You can sign up from 6 August 2013 up to and including 18 November 2013 so get cracking now using this link
