Sedgefield Energy Switch is a new initiative from Sedgefield Development Trust. Working together with iChoosr, we're trying to help Sedgefield residents save money on their domestic gas and electricity bills.
Sedgefield still continue to have the highest switching rate in the country.
The next auction period key dates are:
Having now completed our third year of energy switching we are pleased to be able to report that during the last year, which has been the most challenging due to increasing energy costs, more people have registered for the scheme this year than in either of the two previous years. Over 500 people registering and of those more than 200 switched.
It is also very pleasing to see that more and more people, once having joined the scheme, stay with the scheme as it appears to offer a very effective and hassle free means of obtaining highly competitive energy prices.
We will continue to provide updates on the scheme both on the website and in the Sedgefield News, but if you require any further information, or help, please call the SDT Helpline on 07980 134 594 or come along to the Sedgefield Farmers Market, on the first Sunday in the month, where the Development Trust have a stall and will help with your queries.
The Development Trust feels that we could achieve even greater levels savings in the village if we could make contact with more residents. There are many active groups in the village and if you would like us to come along to a part of one of your meetings, we could provide more information than we can do via the Sedgefield Website or in the News. If your group would be interested, or if anybody has ideas of how we might communicate the information more effectively, please contact the Helpline.
IF YOU ARE UNSURE, THE SDT HELPLINE, 07980 134 594, IS ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO HELP
If you have joined the switching scheme already, your contract with your new energy provider is only for a period of 12 months from the date you switched. If you wish to continue to be a part of the scheme and hopefully continue to save on your energy bills you will need to register again before your contract comes to an end. That end date will be shown on any of your statements you have received from your energy provider.
