Coventry City Council’s Switch and Save scheme is back for another year to give residents the chance to save money on their energy bills.
The Council has teamed up again with iChoosr, one of the country’s leading switching organisations, to help people get the best deals by switching to another energy company.
Councillor Jim O’Boyle, Cabinet Member for Jobs and Regeneration, said: “Too many people are paying too much for their gas and electricity, and 66% of all households are still on the most expensive standard variable tariffs. Switch and Save makes the job of switching quick and easy.”
"The average annual saving last time was £285 per household so it’s definitely worth looking into. I will be registering and I hope lots of people will join me.”
For residents to find out if they could get cheaper energy bills, they must register online or over the phone by Monday 13 February 2017.
Switching with Switch and Save happens in four simple stages: you register your details including some information from your energy bills; then you get an offer from the energy company that has given the best deal in a competition run by iChoosr; you then say whether you want to switch or not; and if you do want to switch then iChoosr and the energy company make the arrangements for you.
Councillor Kamran Caan, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Sport, said: “The cold winter weather makes it hard for people to stay warm, especially if they’re paying too much for their gas and electricity. Energy costs are also set to go up, so Switch and Save will make a real difference.”
