Could you save on energy bills?

Householders are being advised to make the switch to save money on energy bills as summer approaches.

By registering with the free of charge Lincolnshire Energy Switch Scheme you could save hundreds of pounds, council officers advise.

The deadline for registering is Monday May 16 and all you need is a recent gas or electricity bill which shows your current tariff and your energy consumption. All can register, whether you rent your home or own it, whether you are on dual fuel, electric only, pay monthly or quarterly or have a prepayment meter.

The scheme is organised by Lincolnshire County Council, South Kesteven District Council, West Lindsey District Council, East Lindsey District Council, North Kesteven District Council and Lincoln City Council and administered by the UK’s leading collective switching expert, iChoosr Ltd. 

Lead officer for the councils Karen Lond said: “We are always keen to look at new ways to help Lincolnshire residents reduce their monthly outgoings.

“Register for the Lincolnshire Energy Switch Scheme and you could save a worthwhile amount on energy bills. It’s such an easy process, it just takes minutes to complete.”

Once households have registered their interest, the energy suppliers will be invited to compete with their best offers. There is no obligation to take up the winning supplier’s tariff offer.

Visit www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/switch to register or if you do not have internet access, a friend or family member can do this on your behalf by calling the free phone number 0800 048 8439 from 8am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday.
