Energy savvy residents who signed up to Crawley Borough Council’s Energy Switch scheme are set to make an average saving of £245 over the next 12 months.

The 660 people who registered for the scheme can now take advantage of the exclusive market leading rates and should have received their offers via email or the post.

A range of contracts will be supplied by E.ON and Scottish Power and those who registered have until March 16 to accept their offer.

The council worked in partnership with iChoosr to help reduce costs through an energy auction process.

This meant the more people who signed up to the scheme, the better the deal, as energy companies bid their best prices to beat their competitors for the prospect of a large number of new customers.

Cllr Colin Lloyd, Cabinet member for environment, said: “As a council, helping to improve the quality of life for our residents is really important to us and it’s great to see the potential for such fantastic savings for Crawley people.

“Many people will now be keeping warm while also keeping hold of hundreds of pounds over the next year.”

Households wanting to sign up for the next auction in May can register their interest by visiting www.crawley.gov.uk/energyswitching and leaving their contact details.

If people haven’t received their offers yet they are advised to first check their email spam folders and then call the iChoosr helpline on 0800 088 5007.

Registered people who have questions and want to speak face to face to a council officer can visit a drop-in session on Wednesday March 4 in the town hall foyer between 11am and 3pm.
