Council urge people to sign up and save on energy bills


Boston customers are being encouraged to join a new ‘Lincolnshire Energy Switch Scheme’ to try to cut their gas and electricity bills.

Seven authorities in the county have jointly launched the campaign which invites residents to join forces for a collective contract.

Coun Mike Gilbert, Boston Borough Council’s housing portfolio holder, said: “We are encouraging as many residents as possible to register with the Lincolnshire Energy Switch scheme and to work with iChoosr to secure the best possible gas and electricity rates for a community switch here in Lincolnshire. We are always keen to look at new ways to help our residents reduce their monthly outgoings and this is the start of a process that could help families and individuals suffering fuel poverty.”

To register visit, call 01522 782067 or go to the Municipal Buildings in West Street.

Registration deadline is Monday, February 17, after which the tariff of the lowest bidding energy supplier will be offered to residents.

Residents can then decide whether to accept the offer or not.

When the auction has been completed customers will receive an offer letter by email or post.

Customers then have four weeks to confirm they wish to switch supplier by following the instructions in the offer email or returning a signed form by post.
