Residents are being urged to beat the energy price rises by joining the Collective Energy Switching campaign which launches today, giving people a better deal on their household energy bills.
With energy bills continually on the rise, and more people suffering fuel poverty, the Collective Energy Switching campaign aims to help tackle the problem.
Households are being urged to sign up, for free, before April 8th, and the more people who do, the better deal they will receive. Cheshire East is hoping to smash its target of getting 7,000 households to sign up.
Cheshire East Council will hold an online auction on April 9th, and the energy companies who make the lowest bid will win your custom. People are not obliged to commit at this stage.
Councillor Jamie Macrae, Cabinet member in charge of prosperity and economic regeneration, said: “This campaign is open to everyone and the more people we get to sign up, the bigger buying power we will have to drive down energy bills.
“Cheshire East Council is committed to helping people who are finding it increasingly hard to heat their homes during the harsh winters.
