Join others and save on energy bills

Published Friday 23 August 2019

Residents across the Harborough district are being encouraged to join others in saving money on their gas and electricity bills.

Harborough District Council’s new ‘Switch & Save’ initiative, launched in partnership with iChooser, can help residents save money by switching to lower energy tariffs as part of a group.

Residents can sign up to the scheme whereby energy companies bid against each other to provide the lowest tariffs.

Once a price is fixed, residents who have signed up to the scheme have a choice of whether to proceed and sign up with the new supplier. There are no obligations for the resident to switch if they choose not to.

Cllr Jonathan Bateman, Harborough District Council’s regulatory services lead, said: “Anyone who lacks the confidence or knowledge of how to switch energy companies can really benefit from ‘Switch & Save’ and could potentially save a lot of money on their energy bills.”

Residents can sign up online, via the Council website, or – if they don’t have access to the internet – they can just phone the Council on 01858 828282 or visit The Symington Building in Adam and Eve Street, Market Harborough, LE16 7AG, and get help from a customer services advisor to sign up to ‘Switch and Save’.

Sign up for free online at before the next deadline of 8 October 2019.
