Save money on your energy bills with Cornwall Together

We’ve just help launch a second round of the Cornwall Together collective buying group to help even more households save money on their energy bills.

It follows the success of Cornwall Together’s first round of switching that took place in October 2012. In just under a month 7,000 Cornish households had signed up, with switchers saving an average of £133 on their energy bills.

So what’s new?
This time round the project has evolved slightly, with prospective members now able to see the savings they stand to gain at the outset.

Although the winning bespoke energy tariffs have already been selected, Cornwall Together still works by strength in numbers.

The more people who take part, the better the deal will be. After round two closes at midnight on 17 March 2013, Cornwall Together members will find out if they’re collectively eligible for an even bigger discount.

Why should you switch?
The initiative – conceived by the Eden Project and backed by Cornwall Council, Community Energy Plus, Age UK, Citizens Advice Bureau, uSwitch, energyshare, Unison, St Austell Brewery, and the NHS – aims to help Cornwall save an estimated £3.7 million in fuel bills.

Matt Hastings, Cornwall Together founder, is delighted that the initiative has been such a success and is eager to launch round two. ‘Despite the savings claimed from Cornwall Together’s first round, £750,000 of savings still went unclaimed from people who signed up but didn’t switch.’

‘With 10% of revenue generated going towards a fund addressing fuel poverty, switching with Cornwall Together is a win win situation for the county.’

Coming to a town near you
We”ll be on the road all month visiting towns all over the county to see if we can save you money on your energy bills.

Come and see us in town centres, village halls and in pubs all around Cornwall – we’ll be armed with tea, cake and games to brighten up your day.

Signing up is very simple, and if you bring along an energy bill we’ll help you see your potential savings there and then.

    Kind regards

    Hi Lesley, unfortunately we’ve finished this project for the spring. We can suggest that you contact our partners Community Energy Plus, who have a free helpline offering advice on bills: http://www.cep.org.uk/help-for-householders/advice-services/
