Lower Cost Energy

Home » Newsroom » Lower Cost Energy

Cheshire East Council has launched its scheme to supply lower cost energy to householders and businesses.

Back in December last year, Cheshire East Council announced that it had entered into a contractual partnership with a recognised energy supplier to offer competitive energy in the Borough and, potentially, the wider North West region.

Cheshire East is the first local authority in the country to sign up with Ovo Energy, which aims to offer substantial savings against the national average tariff rates charged by the Big Six suppliers.

It means that Cheshire East will be the first council to sell energy in the UK since nationalisation in 1948.

Last December, Council Leader, Councillor Michael Jones, said "The alleviation of fuel poverty is a key priority for us.

"This is yet another innovation for Cheshire East Council which will have a direct financial benefit for residents.

"We have already frozen council tax for four consecutive years. Now we will ensure that low-income families who are worried about paying their bills can buy energy more cheaply and will not have to choose between heating and eating.

"I want the people of Cheshire East to live well and for longer and not to have to worry about meeting huge energy bills."

The new deal, branded as Fairerpower, will potentially benefit all of Cheshire East's 170,000 households and also those living in other parts of the North West region. Businesses could also take advantage.

Beat Fuel Poverty and SAVE — Scheme has now launched and you can register your interest to make significant savings over your existing tariff.
