Energy Switching Scheme for Southport residents April 15th, 2013 admin Latest News Shares Comments Energy Switching Scheme for Southport residents Residents in Sefton can now join a regional switching scheme which should help them save on their energy bills. The Liverpool City Region (LCR) Collective Switch will give householders from across the region the chance to join together to get a better deal on their gas and electricity supply, and save hundreds of pounds on their energy bills each year. The scheme is organised by Wirral-based charity, Energy Projects Plus, together with the Liverpool City Region local authorities including Sefton. Anyone can join the LCR Collective Switch. Those who have never switched their energy supplier or who haven’t switched in the last 12 months are likely to benefit most from the collective switch. Working together makes it safe and easy to switch supplier and householders could typically save £189 per year on their energy bills. More than one in five households across the City Region are currently living in fuel poverty. This scheme aims to help those people to reduce their fuel bills whilst enabling them to keep warm in their homes. The LCR Collective Switch is backed by Sefton Council along with Halton, Knowsley, Wirral and Liverpool City Council. It’s free to join and householders will be able to see how much they would save before they decide if they want to switch suppliers. Cllr Trish Hardy, Cabinet Member Communities and Environment, said: “People in our region are concerned by rising fuel prices but many aren’t on their energy supplier’s best tariff. “The LCR Collective Switch scheme aims to cut through the confusion and make it easy for people to switch their tariff and get a better deal on their energy bills. We hope that everyone will join in and see how much they could save by collectively switching.” Householders are able to register online or by phone on freephone 0800 043 0151. Residents can also get free and impartial help and advice about saving energy at home. Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
