People are urged to join forces to cut bills

People in Rother could pay less for their gas and electricity under an energy switching scheme says Rother District Council.

People have until Monday, October 13 to register their interest in the Big Community Switch, which allows residents to sign up with gas and electricity companies as a collective group to secure a better deal on fuel bills.

Energy firms are invited to bid against each other to offer the cheapest deal, which will then be offered to all those who registered their interest in the council-backed scheme.

People can register their interest in the scheme online at http://bigcommunityswitch.ichoosr.com
