Merseyside Collective Switch offers residents much needed help with energy bills

This past year has seen a huge change in the way many of us live and work. With more of us working from home, there has been a significant increase in energy bills.

St Helens Borough Council is a partner in the Merseyside Collective Switch, which helps local people find cheaper energy tariffs, and reduce their energy bills.  

Run by local charity Energy Projects Plus, the Merseyside Collective Switch uses the power of the group to negotiate cheap energy tariffs, available exclusively to its members. Anyone can join and it’s completely free. 

In the last round members saved an average of £220 a year. 

The winning tariffs have often been the cheapest on the market and have included Big 6 suppliers. 

The Merseyside Collective Switch also includes a full market comparison, so if the winning deals aren’t right for you, you can find one that is. 

And by switching with the Merseyside Collective Switch you will be helping to support Energy Projects Plus, who provide vital support to local people who are living in fuel poverty. 

As exclusive deals are only available to members, you will need to register to be eligible. Once you’ve registered, you will be able to access exclusive offers time and time again, and make sure you’re not missing out on a great deal on your energy. 

Councillor Jeanie Bell, St Helens Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Safer, Stronger Communities, said: 

“The Collective Switch is a great scheme in which you could save a lot of money on your energy bills and help to support those struggling in fuel poverty. 

“It takes a couple of minutes to register, you’re not tied into anything and all the work is done for you. While we’re all spending a lot more time at home these days many of us have seen our energy bills increase, so give it a go this year by registering before Tuesday 16th February.” 

Registration for this round closes on Tuesday 16th February.   

You will be contacted about the deals that have been negotiated for the group by phone or email.
