Cheaper energy for campaign sign-ups
Published on 09 February 2012 03:00 PM
When it comes to energy prices it seems two heads really are better than one, as grouping together could help you secure a better deal.
Consumer watchdog Which? has launched a new campaign to which customers can sign up and reap the benefits of cheaper gas and electricity.
Consumers simply sign up online, and then energy companies will be invited to submit deals and take part in a reverse auction.
Energy companies will present their lowest price per kilowatt of electricity and cubic meter of gas.
Which? said that once a deal has been secured, those who have signed up will be notified by either email or text message and they can then choose whether or not to accept it. Simply sign up by March 31.
Which? has teamed up with the online campaigning group 38 Degrees to launch The Big Switch.
Executive director Richard Lloyd said: 'Thousands of people tell us that they want a much better, affordable energy deal. It's a £4 billion free kick for the energy companies if so many of us stick with their more expensive tariffs.
'This is a completely new way to buy energy as a group. The bigger the group, the stronger our bargaining power will be.'
