New Year, New Savings! Switch Telford helps you save on energy bills
If your New Year’s resolution is to tidy up your finances, why not start by taking just 5 minutes on www.switch.telford.gov.uk , to see what you can save on your household energy bills ?
Even with the new energy price cap coming into force this month, the best savings you could make still come from switching energy supplier.
Telford & Wrekin Council is making it easier for anyone, whether they live in the borough or not, to save money on energy bills, thanks to the Council’s own price comparison and switching website, www.switch.telford.gov.uk
Switch Telford is Ofgem accredited and partners with uSwitch, making it possible for people to save as much as *£482 on their annual energy bills.
Even with standard energy rates being capped nationally from January 2019, the Council encourages people to save much more by comparing tariffs and switching supplier.
For every switch made through www.switch.telford.gov.uk, the Council receives a commission which is used to support and sustain council services in the borough, such as those for vulnerable old people and children.
Councillor Lee Carter, Cabinet member for Finance, Commercial Services & Economic Development said:
"I know the New Year is a time when lots of us consider making some changes and this one is very simple.
““www.switch.telford.gov.uk helps you make considerable savings, even around *£482 on annual energy bills. If you haven’t switched your supplier for a while, try it and see how much you could save.
“The energy price cap which comes into force this January ensures now a fair price for standard energy rates – however, this doesn’t mean people are on the cheapest deal available on the market.
“This is why we encourage our residents ensure they’re making more savings, by comparing rates and switching to a better deal using switch.telford.gov.uk
“Approximately 500 households have switched their energy provider through Switch Telford since the launch of the website in spring 2017.”
““In addition to saving money on energy bills, anyone who uses www.switch.telford.gov.uk will be helping the Council to support the Borough’s services for the most vulnerable.”
Switch Telford is free to use, lists best possible deals on market in real time and provides tailored advice on the cheapest tariff for individual households.
It takes around 5 minutes to switch your supplier, it’s really that simple.
* Between 1 Jan 2018 and 30 Jun 2018, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with uSwitch (Switch Telford Ofgem accredited partner) saved £482 or more.
