Charnwood’s new energy scheme could cut your fuel costs by over £240 One of the successes that Paul has had on Cabinet is getting unanimous support for a Collective Switching Scheme which will enable residents across the borough to make savings on energy bills. There will be no cost to register for the scheme and it will not cost the Council anything. The average savings for customers who have switched is £243 a year. “This scheme will assist households to switch their energy supplier to achieve lower fuel tariffs for gas, electricity or both”, commented Paul. “It is just one example of the way in which Charnwood is committed to helping its residents and it was also help address the issue of fuel poverty. Residents on prepaid meters, who often find switching difficult, can also opt to be in the scheme”. Collective Switching is where the Council supports residents of the borough to switch energy supplies and obtain lower fuel tariffs and thereby saving the money on their energy bills. Because it is being promoted by Charnwood it gives people the trust, confidence and support to switch, particularly where some may distrust the energy companies and are confused about the process. As a result of implementing Collective Switching the Council will: Enable residents to make savings on their energy bills Help reduce the number of households in fuel poverty provide an opportunity to get across to residents messages about energy efficiency There is no cost to the residents of either registering for the scheme of switching fuel suppliers. Under the scheme, the council will promote to residents the principle of switching energy suppliers to access lower tariffs. Residents can sign up to switch over a two- month period prior to each auction and can register either online or by post. Charnwood will promote the scheme through its website, social media, advertising and contact networks. In areas that have embarked on Collective Switching the elderly make up a large number of those who switch as they are less likely to search online for better deals. The scheme was proposed by Paul in cabinet in January and was included in the Council’s Annual Procurement Plan which was approved in March 2019.
