Deadline Extended for Energy Saving Scheme in East Riding


2:46pm 22nd April 2013

YORSwitch ambassadors are visiting customer service centres, village halls and other venues across the East Riding over the next two weeks to assist households, who registered for the first round of the YORSwitch, who require support in understanding and processing their offer letters.

More than 15,000 households signed up for the energy switchover scheme and collectively could stand to save almost £1 million.

At the auction of energy suppliers, British Gas, Scottish Power and Sainsbury Energy, supplied by British Gas, were successful in securing the right to provide the tariffs, which are as follows:

*     dual fuel (online) monthly direct debit (MDD) winner - Sainsbury Energy

*     dual fuel (paper) MDD winner - Sainsbury Energy

*     electricity only (online) MDD winner - Scottish Power

*     electricity only (paper) MDD winner - Scottish Power

*     dual fuel pre-pay meter (PPM) winner - British Gas

*     electricity only PPM winner - British Gas.

To speak with an ambassador, all you have to bring is your offer letter and copy of your latest energy bill.
