YORSwitch help at hand in the area

YORSwitch ambassadors are visiting venues in the area to assist households who registered for the first round of the energy switchover scheme.

They will be on hand to offer advice about understanding and processing 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.

Ambassadors will be available at the following locations:

Wednesday, 24 April – Holme on Spalding Moor Village Hall – 4-7pm

Thursday, 25 April – Stamford Bridge Village Hall – 4-7pm

Saturday, 27 April – Market Weighton Customer Service Centre – 9.30am-12.30pm

Tuesday, 30 April – Pocklington Customer Service Centre – 9.30am-7.30pm

If you missed out on the first round of YORSwitch there is another chance to sign up.

The second round gets underway later this month, with the open date for registrations starting on Monday, 22 April with the deadline of Monday, 3 June and the auction amongst energy suppliers on Tuesday, 4 June.
