Residents across the county can make huge savings on their energy bills by signing up to the Lincolnshire Energy Switch scheme.
Energy bills might be at the back of our minds as we take time out in the summer sun, but price increases announced last week mean that now is the perfect time to review your supplier– and potentially save hundreds of pounds when we use more energy in autumn and winter.
Anyone can register, whether you rent your home or own it from today at www.lincoln.gov.uk/switch.
All you need is your annual gas or electric statement or bills covering the last 12 months to hand.
The scheme is organised by South Kesteven District Council, Boston Borough Council, City of Lincoln Council, East Lindsey District Council, Lincolnshire County Council, North Kesteven District Council and West Lindsey District Council and is administered by the UK’s leading collective switching expert, iChoosr Ltd.
Anne-Marie Coulthard, spokesperson for the councils said: “This is another great opportunity for householders to save hundreds of pounds on their energy bills.
“Registering is really simple and there is nothing to lose by seeing if the winning supplier at the auction beats your current energy prices. If they do, you could be on your way to some timely savings on your bills later this year.
“Thousands of people across the county have already switched energy providers from our auctions in the last few years and pocketed the big saving, why not join them?”
If you’re not able to register online, a friend or family members can do this on your behalf, or you can register offline at your local council or by calling 0800 048 8439.
Lincolnshire Energy Switch is open to all energy users, whether you are on dual fuel, electric only, pay monthly or quarterly or have a prepayment meter.
There is no obligation for people to accept the offer or a new tariff from a supplier, but if they do it’s easy and straightforward and the new provider will take care of the whole process.
The closing date for registrations is 9th October 2017.
