If you find yourself struggling to keep on top of your energy bills, we can provide you with helpful tips and practical ways to save energy in your home.
First Speak To Your Energy Supplier
If you contact your energy supplier and let them know that you’re thinking of switching suppliers - they may place you on a cheaper tariff or one that won’t change for a while. If you’re getting into debt you should also call your supplier immediately as they can provide guidance on whether you qualify for any support payments or schemes.
Switch Energy Supplier
Switching your energy supplier is fairly simple, quick to do and can help you make savings on your energy bills. Also, if you live in Merseyside, twice a year you can take part in the Collective Switch! It works by using the power of the group (the people who sign up) to negotiate the best cheap energy tariffs for everyone who's joined.
Set up in 2013, the Merseyside Collective Switch is one of the longest running Local Authority Collective Switches in the country. Together, it's helped people across the Liverpool City Region save over £1.5 million on their energy bills. It’s completely free to join - simply visit www.lcrenergyswitch.co.uk or call the Save Energy Advice Line on freephone 0800 043 0151, where you can also get other free and impartial support to help reduce your energy bills.
This runs twice a year and will re-open again in September 2021.
