Since October 2015, Solihull Council has launched three collective switching schemes, called Solihull Switch ’n’ Save, designed to take the hassle out of searching for a cheaper gas and electricity provider.
Over 2,300 households in Solihull registered for the scheme and were offered average savings of £277, leading to 845 households switching supplier and together saving over £250,000!
The Council will be launching the scheme again in April. Residents need to register by 23rd May 2017.
To get involved all residents need to do is have a recent energy bill to hand and visit www.solihull.gov.uk/switching to register their interest. An auction will then be held where energy companies will bid for the opportunity to offer a cheaper deal. At no point are any personal details released to utility companies.
