East Riding’s YORSwitch Collective Energy Switching Scheme – YORSwitch open for registration
East Riding residents who are looking to save money on their energy bills are invited to sign up for the latest round of YORSwitch.
Since the scheme started in 2013, YORSwitch has switched more than 28,000 households and delivered more than £6 million savings for East Riding residents. In the latest auction alone, more than 5,300 East Riding households registered to get a better deal with YORSwitch.
The council partnered with iChoosr, the UK’s leading expert in collective energy switching, and together were able to deliver bespoke and highly competitive tariffs.
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.
East Riding of Yorkshire Councillor Chris Matthews, portfolio holder for strategic management, said: “Householders should not be lulled into a false sense of security that they will get the best deal for their energy by staying with their existing provider.”
“It remains a fact that households which have not switched tariff recently could make significant savings by reviewing their energy contracts and council-operated collective switching schemes, such as YORSwitch, provide a safe and easy route for householders to engage with the energy market.”
This current round of YORSwitch will be available until midnight on Tuesday, 26 November2019.
Registering is easy and straightforward, just visit YORSwitch, alternatively call (01482) 393939, or visit your local customer service centre. Please remember to bring a latest energy bill with you.
