Essex green tariff helps save £258 on power bills: An energy switching initiative from the local authority in Essex has given households the chance to see their gas and electricity bills lowered by £258.

Registration was free and the eligible tariffs provided 100% renewable electricity, the energy switching scheme organised by Essex County Council aims to help residents reduce their bills.

More than 5,000 residents registering for the scheme during the campaign, with 1,644 households switching their energy to one of the three winning suppliers.

The total of carbon emissions which have been saved from this scheme are estimated to equate to the removal of 1,059 cars from the road.

Essex County Council Cabinet Member for Environment and Climate Change Action, Councillor Simon Walsh said: “The initiative is proving to be an easy and cost-effective way for all Essex households to make the switch to renewable energy.

“The amount of savings made by Essex residents using the scheme speak for themselves, with more than £3.7 million saved overall since the scheme launched in 2014.”
