North East Lincolnshire Council

Get ready to switch

The Big Community Switch is back to help you save money on your home energy bills.

North East Lincolnshire Council has joined forces with the Big Community Switch once again.

The national scheme sees energy companies bid to be your supplier by offering you big savings on your gas and electricity.

The latest round launched this week and you have until Monday 18 May to sign up for the scheme.

You have nothing to lose, and there’s no obligation to switch suppliers, but you could save a hefty sum if you choose to make the change.

For more information or to register online, visit: www.nelincs.gov.uk/HomeEnergy or call the Home Energy Team on 01472 326296 and choose option 5.

Make sure you have a recent energy bill to hand before calling.
