Local Charities en-form and Signpost are working with Colchester Borough Council to reduce energy bills for local residents.
They are currently running a Government funded project to review consumers energy bills and then to offer free, impartial and unbiased advice on alternative tariffs. If you decide to switch they will even arrange this for you.
Although the service is open to anyone it is aimed at those who have never switched energy providers and don’t feel confident enough to do so.
Andrew Wilkinson of en-form said ‘Savings of up to £200 are available, although the most we have saved a customer so far was £149. Apparently, almost 60% of consumers have never switched. ‘
There are many reasons why people do not switch including being unsure of the process, unable to receive impartial advice, no access to the internet or finding the process complicated. This service will arrange everything for you and then let you decide if you want to switch.
If you would like to benefit from this service or know someone who could, please telephone en-form on 01206 367776 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org They will be visiting most local areas over the next few months.
