You could be saving on energy costs?

Anyone who wants to potentially save hundreds of pounds on their energy bills this year has until midnight on February 1 to register for a provider switch scheme.

Residents can register for the Lincolnshire Energy Switch scheme at west-lindsey.gov.uk/switch or by calling 0800 048 8439.

In the last auction in 2015, almost 700 people earned an average realised saving of £218 on their bills when compared with their current energy provider and many of those are now counting the pounds in their pockets to spend elsewhere this year.

All you need to do to register is have your annual gas or electric statement or bills covering the last 12 months to hand.

Once you’ve registered your interest, energy suppliers will then be invited to compete with their best offers at an auction.

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