You can now sign up to a winter warmer of savings on gas and electricity bills for 2015 with the Lincolnshire Energy Switch Scheme.

The latest opportunity to join the scheme started last week and runs until February 2, 2015. It could bring you hundreds of pounds of savings – freeing up extra cash to help pay for the cost of Christmas or to put towards improvements to your home next year.

In a recent auction, households that accepted offers saved an average of £234.

Nearly 5,000 Lincolnshire households have registered to join forces to get better deals from energy suppliers, making the county’s residents one of the biggest groups to tackle the energy companies for better tariffs. Households are again invited to register for the scheme, organised by Lincolnshire County Council and Community Lincs and administered by the UK’s leading collective switching expert, iChoosr Ltd.

To register submit your details at www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/switch. If you do not have internet access, a friend or family member can do it on your behalf or call free phone 0800 048 8439. The registration number is open 8am-5.30pm Monday to Friday.

Once households have registered an interest, the energy suppliers will be invited to compete with their best offers.

The scheme is free for households to join and there is no obligation to take up the winning supplier’s tariff offer.

All can register, whether you rent or own your home, whether you are on dual fuel, electric only, pay monthly or quarterly or have a prepayment meter.

The scheme is open to all those in the UK.
