‘Warwickshire Switch and Save’ – Save Money on Utility Bills

Join residents saving an average of £128 on their gas and electricity with Warwickshire Switch and Save
January 21, 2019

It is great news for Warwickshire residents this week as Warwickshire County Council’s collective energy switching scheme – Warwickshire Switch and Save – opens its registration period for the February 2019 reverse auction.

In Warwickshire, over 1000 households registered with the scheme for the previous reverse auction which took place in October 2018 and the county’s Switch and Savers were combined with 37 other similar initiatives from all around the UK to create a consumer collective of over 25,000 registered households. Those residents who signed-up to the scheme were made offers representing an average saving of £128 on their utility bills.

One Leamington Spa resident contacted Warwickshire County Council after our first reverse auction in May 2018 to let them know how overjoyed he was when he received his personal offer highlighting a £401 saving on his electricity bill

Following the October reverse auction, there was one provider, E.O.N, who was able to provide residents with the best rate for their gas and electricity bills and they have been providing the following contracts to consumers:
Residents who have online billing;
Residents who have paper billing; and
Residents using pre-payment meters.

In total, 75% of people who registered for the scheme last time in Warwickshire could have saved on their energy bills if they chose to switch, meaning lots of happy residents in the county. Now that process begins again giving even more residents the opportunity to switch and save.

Users can visit the Warwickshire Switch and Save website to register their interest in becoming a saver or visit one of the ‘Bring your Bill’ events taking place around Warwickshire in January, February and March 2019

Welcoming the launch of the latest registration period, Cllr Peter Butlin, Deputy Leader of Warwickshire County Council and Portfolio Holder for Finance and Property, said: “This is fantastic news for residents in Warwickshire and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to work with partners and other organisations to improve the quality of life for all, particularly some of our more vulnerable residents who worry about the costs of heating their homes.
“Some residents will be paying too much, particularly if they haven’t switched supplier for a while, so I’d encourage everyone to sign up and see what offer they receive. Don’t delay, sign up today”
