Want to save hundreds of pounds on your energy bills? Then make sure you beat the deadline and join thousands of others who have saved through the Lincolnshire Energy Switch scheme, says SKDC.

The county’s residents have until midnight on Monday, February 2, to join the scheme at www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/switch

All you need is your annual gas or electric statement or bills covering the last 12 months to hand. Once you’ve registered your interest, energy suppliers will then be invited to compete with their best offers at an auction.

If you’re not able to register online, you can register offline at your local council or by calling 0800 048 8439 until 5pm on Monday, February 2.

Over 1,600 households in Lincolnshire switched in 2014, saving an estimated £316,000 between them.

The scheme is organised by Boston Borough Council, City of Lincoln Council, East Lindsey District Council, Lincolnshire County Council, South Kesteven District Council, North Kesteven District Council and West Lindsey District Council and is administered by the UK’s leading collective switching expert, iChoosr Ltd.

Everyone can register, whether you rent your home or own it, whether you are on dual fuel, electric only, pay monthly or quarterly or have a prepayment meter.

Karen Lond, lead officer for the councils said: “It’s a great time to save money on your energy bills and there is nothing to lose by registering and seeing if the winningsupplier beats your current energy prices.

“But remember, the deadline is Monday, so don’t miss out.”

Offers will be sent to residents from Friday, February 13, to consider if they offer a better deal than their current energy provider. The final date for accepting an offer is Monday, March 16.
