Due to the success of the Switch Together, Save Together campaign its deadlinehas been extended until midnight on 30 March.
The campaign helps reduce people’s energy bills by using collective buying power to negotiate cheaper tariffs from energy suppliers.
So far this phase of the campaign has saved more than 700 households over £196,000 a year in total on their energy bills, with average savings of £274.
The Switch Together, Save Together campaign is organised by local charity, Energy Projects Plus, together with all Merseyside local authorities and social housing providers.
Collective Switch member Nicola Hodge said: “Andy looked into the switch and it wasn’t very good for us, but Kathy next door took it up and has saved just on £270 per year. She is ‘absolutely delighted’. I told Nan about it too and she also saved a similar amount.”
Chief Executive of Energy Projects Plus, Peter Owen said: “Having saved over half a million pounds on fuel bills since we started our campaign, we’re really keen for as many people as possible to take advantage of this opportunity.”
