Gas and electricity bills have more than doubled in the last eight years. Households that haven’t switched supplier or tariff in the past twelve months could be paying up to £300 a year more than if they switched to the cheapest tariff available.
To encourage residents to switch and save, the council is supporting Your Energy Sussex, a local energy supplier and we are also partnering with iChoosr to offer their collective switching scheme.
For more information on both options or advice on switching please call the Sustainability Team on 01293 438444
Your Energy Sussex is a local energy supplier, backed by councils in Sussex, which offers straightforward advice, excellent customer service and works hard to keep customers on the best energy tariff.
Your Energy Sussex is different to other energy companies because it doesn’t make money for shareholders or directors’ bonuses. Profits are used to help local people who are struggling to pay their energy bills.
To get a free no obligation quote visit www.yourenergysussex.org.uk or call free phone 0800 952 0001. It’s useful to have a recent bill gas and electricity bill to hand so you know how much you use and how much you would normally pay.
The Big Community Switch is an independent collective energy switching scheme in which councils collectively offer their residents the opportunity to group together and pay less for their energy. iChoosr hold three auctions in February, May and October in which energy companies bid their best prices to beat competitors and gain a large number of new customers. The more people who take part, the greater our chances of getting a competitive energy deal.
Register online or call 0800 048 8285 to receive a no obligation ‘fixed term’ energy quote for one year (at the end of the year you will be put on a ‘variable tariff’, at which point you should compare this offer to other tariffs available to you). If you choose to accept the offer, iChoosr will take care of the switch for you.
Before you register, please make sure you have the name of your current energy supplier, your tariff plan and usage in either kWh or cost.
