HALTON householders have another chance to save on their energy bills.

Residents are invited to join The Switch Together, Save Together scheme, organised by local charity, Energy Projects Plus and the Merseyside local authorities.

It aims to reduce people’s energy bills by using collective buying power to negotiate cheaper tariffs from energy suppliers.

This is the second collective switch organised by the partners.

Some 4,600 residents joined the first one in June which saved Merseyside residents £76,435 on their fuel bills.

This switch aims to be even bigger and better by negotiating an exclusive cheap tariff.

Halton Council Leader, Clr Rob Polhill, said: “This is a great opportunity for the people of Halton to join together and collectively benefit from reduced energy bills.

"The last Merseyside collective switch showed that by joining together, we can make a difference.

“It’s free and easy to join, and there’s nothing to lose. I would encourage everyone to join in and see how much they could save by collectively switching.”

Anyone can join the collective switch, regardless of current supplier or payment methods. Those who have never switched their energy supplier or who haven’t switched in the last 12 months, are likely to benefit most.

The Merseyside Collective Switch is backed by Halton Council, Knowsley Council, Liverpool City Council, Sefton Council, St Helens Council and Wirral Council.

Householders can join the collective switch by registering online at LCRenergyswitch.co.uk or by calling the local Save Energy Advice Line on freephone 0800 043 0151.

Householders can register until Monday, March 10.
