East Riding's YORSwitch collective energy switching scheme delivers savings for residents again
Tue, 01 Oct 2019

A new round of YORSwitch is open for registrations.

Since the scheme started in 2013 YORSwitch has delivered more than £6.1 million savings for East Riding residents.  In the latest auction more than 5,000 East Riding households registered for the YORSwitch scheme.  Now is the ideal time for residents, especially those on standard tariffs, to switch.

Councillor Chris Matthews, the council's portfolio holder for strategic management,  said: “In the short term, despite forthcoming energy price caps, households should not be lulled into a false sense of security that they will get the best deal for their energy. It remains the fact that households which have not switched tariff recently could make significant savings by reviewing their energy contracts, and council operated collective switching schemes such as YORSwitch provide a safe and easy route for householders to engage with the energy market, and will continue to do so.”

How YORSwitch works:

  • Register for free to express your interest: Online eastriding.gov.uk/yorswitch,  Telephone (01482) 393939 or visit your local customer services centre.
  • An auction takes place on 8 October between energy suppliers who try and win your business. (The winning supplier is the one making the lowest offer and is not affiliated to any supplier.)
  • Personal offers will be sent out from 21 October, based on the information you submit. You are under no obligation unless you decide to switch.
  • Support sessions will take place in November if you need any additional support
  • If you decide to accept the offer you have until midnight on the 26 November 2019 to let us know.
  • The council takes care of the entire switch for you, making the whole thing is as smooth and hassle-free as possible.
