n the last collective switching round, members of the Merseyside Collective Switch saved an average of £300 a year by switching to a better energy tariff – and Halton residents are now being urged to sign up again before Tuesday 20 October.
The Merseyside Collective Switch has been running since 2013, and is one of the longest running Local Authority Collective Switches in the country. Together, we’ve helped local people save more than £1.5 million on their energy bills.
Run by local charity Energy Projects Plus, in partnership with local authorities, including Halton Borough Council. the Merseyside Collective Switch uses the power of the group to negotiate cheap energy tariffs, available exclusively to its members. Anyone can join and it’s completely free.
Once you’ve registered, you will be able to access exclusive offers and can make sure you’re not missing out on a great deal on your energy.
The winning tariffs have often been the cheapest on the market. Previous winners have included Big 6 suppliers such as British Gas, E.on, SSE and EDF Energy as well as Ovo and Green Energy.
The Merseyside Collective Switch also includes a full market comparison, so if the winning deals aren’t right for you, you can find one that is.
Plus, by switching with the Merseyside Collective Switch, you will be helping to support Energy Projects Plus, who provide vital support to local people who are living in fuel poverty.
Switching your energy tariff with the Merseyside Collective Switch is both quick and easy, and it could save you hundreds of pounds a year
Halton Borough Council Leader, Cllr Rob Polhill, said he urged everyone to give this scheme a go.
He said: “The Merseyside Collective Switch is here to support everyone and anyone through the switching process to make sure you’re not paying more than you need to, particularly at this challenging time.
“The service is free, and there’s no obligation to switch if you decide not to.
“As exclusive deals are only available to members, you will need to register to be eligible. Registration is completely free and your data will only be used to provide you with information about the winning energy tariffs. “
Peter Owen, CEO at Energy Projects Plus said “We are proud to have been offering this switching service, which is specifically designed to benefit the people of Merseyside, for seven years now. Whether you’re a savvy or reluctant switcher, it’s always worth shopping around to check if you’re on the best deal. “
Registration for this round closes on Tuesday 20 October. We will then contact you to let you know about the deals that have been negotiated for the group.
