Bridlington residents are being urged to check out the YORSwitch energy scheme which has saved millions for its customers.

There will be a special free support session held at Bridlington North Library on Thursday 15 November between 9:30am and noon for people who need help to switch.

Since the programme started in 2013 YORSwitch has delivered more than £5 million savings for East Riding residents.

In the latest auction more than 6,700 East Riding households registered for the YORSwitch scheme.

Registrations were combined with a number of other similar initiatives around the UK, to create a collective of more than 24,000 households from 38 local authority areas.

East Riding householders who signed up for the latest round of the Council’s YORSwitch scheme saved an average of £165 each following an auction between energy companies.

Councillor Symon Fraser 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.”

The current round of YORSwitch ends on 27 November 2018.
