A partnership set up by Cheshire East Council to help local residents reduce their energy bills has saved households £2m.
More than 7,000 people have now signed up to buy their gas and electricity through Fairerpower, a partnership between the Council and award-winning Ovo Energy, since its launch in March 2015.
Cheshire East residents who have switched to Fairerpower are saving an average of £246 on their annual fixed-tariff bills
Fairerpower was formed based upon the belief that people were spending too much on their energy bills by not switching providers for years. The not-for-profit organisation aims to offer a competitive energy plan that gives more back to the people of Cheshire.
Now Fairerpower is advising residents to consider a switch to a fixed tariff deal to avoid getting caught out by the fluctuating cost of energy.
Councillor Don Stockton, cabinet member for regeneration, said: “Fairerpower is building trust through award-winning customer service while securing cheaper and fairer prices for local residents across Cheshire. This was our promise when we started and we are delivering and giving many people a cheaper alternative.
“I would urge residents to consider fixing their energy bills before Christmas, as energy costs look set to rise.”
