East Dorset District Council is supporting a trial scheme to help residents get a better deal on their gas and electricity.
ast Dorset District Council is introducing the East Dorset Energy Switch which uses the collective buying power of customers to get lower gas and electricity prices.
Cllr Andy Skeats, portfolio holder for Community said, “I’m pleased that we are introducing this trial scheme for our residents. Fuel poverty is affecting increasing numbers of people in our community and this collective fuel switch scheme offers residents the chance to reduce their energy bills.
“Many residents haven’t switched their supplier and might be missing the opportunity to save money. Anyone can register for the East Dorset Energy Switch with no obligation to change.”
Residents have until midnight on Monday 9 October to register their interest. Those who have registered will receive a switching offer and have time to decide whether to accept this offer. There is no obligation to switch and there are no charges for taking part, whether you opt to switch or not.
To register, without obligation, for the East Dorset Energy Switch or to find out more information please visit – www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/energy-switch or contact 01202 795096.
