Over 4,200 Essex residents signed up for a chance to save money on their gas and electricity bills with the Essex Energy Switch.

The 4,262 residents that registered for the scheme will start to receive their personalised offers and details on how to switch from Friday, February 28. There is no obligation to accept the offer.

County councillor Roger Walters, cabinet member for waste & recycling, said: “We have had a fantastic response to the first Essex Energy Switch, and I would like to say a big thank-you to everyone who registered.

“If you signed up please look out for your personalised switching offer, which will show you how much you can save and what to do next.

“The county council will continue to look for new and innovative ways to help save money for hard working people across the county.”

The Essex Energy Switch has been organised by Essex County Council in partnership with district, borough and city councils, and delivered by iChoosr, an independent provider which specialises in collective energy switching.
