East Riding YORSwitch collective switching scheme Registration Open NOW
Switching is still the best way to save money on energy bills. In the latest auction more than 5,300 East Riding households registered. The YORSwitch scheme registrations were combined with a number of other similar initiatives around the UK, to create a collective of more than 34,000 households from 50 local authorities. Since it started in 2013 the YORSwitch scheme has now delivered more than £4,500,000 of savings for East Riding residents.
East Riding householders who signed up for the latest round of the council’s YORSwitch scheme could save an average of £190 each following an auction between energy companies. The council partnered with iChoosr, the UK’s leading expert in collective energy switching, and together they were able to deliver bespoke and highly competitive tariffs.
The winner of the dual fuel tariff was SSE and will supply a range of contracts to residents. The SSE tariff was the cheapest Big 6 open market fixed tariff on auction day and not available direct from the suppliers or via price comparison services. SSE is currently ranked number one for customer service by Citizens Advice with 5 out of 5 stars for ease of switching and contact.
Now is the ideal time for residents, especially those on standard tariffs, to switch. Residents should see if they could secure a good rate for the year ahead as wholesale energy prices are likely to continue increasing in the coming weeks.
A drop in session will be held between 9.30am and 3.00pm on Tuesday, 23 January at Goole Library for more information. The next auction will take place in February 2018. Registering for future YORSwitch energy auctions is easy and straightforward, just visit the YORSwitch website or alternatively call (01482) 393939 or visit your local customer service centre.
