Sheffield households seeking cheaper gas and electricity bills are invited to take part in the Big Sheffield Spring Switch deal.
Organised by Sheffield Council, the scheme encouraged residents to sign up to be part of an online auction with energy suppliers. The more households who sign up, the more buying power the council will have and the better the deal for participants.
More than 800 people benefitted from last year’s switch in the autumn, saving an average of £220 each. Some homeowners reported a £500 saving.
This year’s auction will take place on March 1 and participants can switch anytime until March 22.
Coun Jayne Dunn, the council’s cabinet member for environment, recycling and streetscene, said: “I know that energy bills are a really big concern for lots of people.
“I’m delighted we are able to do our part in helping individuals and families alike to reduce their energy bills by launching the Big Sheffield Spring Switch.
“If you are worried about rising energy costs and the effect big bills may have on your family’s budget then this is a great, simple way of making sure you get signed up to the deal that offers you the best value for money. The more households which sign up, the more buying power the scheme has, which is great news across the board.
“We’re really excited to also be offering an environmentally friendly tariff and greater choice so people can choose which package that benefits them the most. I hope as many people as possible sign up to this scheme and we can all save a lot of money together.”
