A pioneering energy supply scheme established by Cheshire East Council is celebrating its third birthday.
Since its creation in 2015, nearly 9,000 people have switched to Fairerpower and their total quoted savings adds up to more than £2million.
Since its launch, Fairerpower has sought to reduce fuel poverty by offering competitive prices with high levels of customer care. And Cheshire East was the first council in the UK to sell power since the gas and electricity supply system was nationalised in 1948.
Recent figures show around 78 per cent of new customers save more than '100 when they switch to Fairerpower and the scheme has been very successful in helping those who had not previously switched energy providers -- particularly more-elderly customers, who had been put off by the perceived complexity of switching.
To celebrate, anyone requesting a quote for their energy during May will be entered into a prize draw to win an iPad and a free one-to-one digital skills training session.
The scheme was also recently rolled out in Lancashire in a partnership with Preston City Council -- and other regional local authority partners are set to join the scheme later in the year.
Since summer 2017, Fairerpower has been managed by the council's wholly-owned, arms-length Skills and Growth Company. For more details see online at:www.fairerpower.co.uk
Ed — we are not quite sure why the picture of snowdrops was attached to the Fairerpower Press release, but it seems a nice picture, so we have used it here.
