A scheme aimed at helping people avoid high energy costs is being launched in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan today. Cyd Cymru is a collective energy buying scheme, which encourages people to band together to negotiate with energy suppliers to get better rates.

Similar schemes have been running across the UK for some time. Developed by Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan councils with support from other local authorities and housing associations, Cyd Cymru aims to simplify complex tariff systems and change the way we buy our energy.
