Copeland Council has launched a free scheme that they say will save local residents money on their energy bills.
The Copeland Big Switch scheme involves organisers creating a large group of customers interested in cheaper tariffs, and then offering their custom as a group to an energy firm offering the best deal.
The council say the previous scheme offered earlier this year, saved a number of householders large amounts on their bills. 72 per cent of those who registered have saved an average £128.
Local residents only have to register using their latest energy bills, and then they will receive a personalised offer revealing how much money could be saved.
There is no obligation to switch. The scheme is run by ichoosr in partnership with Citizens Advice and Age UK.
