Team up to save money on energy bills

People in Carmarthenshire are being encouraged to join forces to save money on their energy bills.
A Collective Energy Switching Scheme called Cyd Cymru has launched nationally, allowing people to group together to negotiate better deals with energy providers.
Now, the council’s Anti-Poverty Champion, Cllr Pam Palmer, is calling on people to give it their consideration – especially as many energy companies are putting up their tariffs.
“Saving extra cash has never been so important to people, and with winter setting in and prices going up, now is the time to act,” she said.
“By buying energy together, people have a bigger voice. I urge people to have a look at it, and consider switching providers if they feel they could save.”
Collective energy switching has been trialled elsewhere in the UK, with participants saving between £60 and £250 per household annually.
As part of the Cyd Cymru scheme, people can register online or by phone. Registrations for the first switch will close in six weeks.
The organisation then negotiates a deal with suppliers via an auction system and advises those in the collective of the provider which has offered the cheapest tariff.
People can then choose to switch, or remain with their current provider.

The service is provided bilingually, and people are advised to have their energy bills to hand.
