Householders who signed up for the latest round of the Lincolnshire Energy Switch Scheme could save an average of £200 each on their energy bills following an auction between energy companies.
The Lincolnshire Energy Switch partnered with iChoosr, the UK’s leading expert in collective energy switching, and together were able to deliver bespoke and highly competitive tariffs.
In Lincolnshire nearly 1,200 households who registered in the latest round of the scheme could be looking forward to cheaper energy bills this winter.
There were two winners in this auction – SSE and Robin Hood Energy - who will supply a range of contracts to residents. The SSE tariff is exclusive to this scheme and is not available from price comparison sites.
From 24 October, personal offer letters or emails will be sent to applicants letting them know if they’ll be saving against their current deal – and if so how much money will be going back into their pocket. It is then their choice whether to switch or not.
And there is still a further opportunity for residents and businesses, especially those on standard tariffs. They could benefit from securing a good rate for the year ahead as wholesale energy prices are likely to continue increasing in the coming weeks.
Households and businesses in the county who haven’t yet signed up are still able to access the competitive deals secured through the Lincolnshire Energy Switch simply by registering at www.west-lindsey.gov.uk/switch up until 29 November.
Karen Lond, lead officer for the councils said: “The scheme continues to offer wonderful value to those who take just a few minutes to register. Hundreds more Lincolnshire residents could have lower energy bills this winter and beyond.
“After 18 months of energy prices falling, they are now starting to rise again so fixing your energy tariff now could help you to keep energy costs low. So if you haven’t already, why not sign up to the Lincolnshire Energy Switch.”
In Lincolnshire the scheme is organised by Boston Borough Council, City of Lincoln Council, East Lindsey District Council, Lincolnshire County Council, South Kesteven
District Council, North Kesteven District Council and West Lindsey District Council.
