Energy switching scheme
Flintshire residents are able to sign up to a Wales-wide collective energy
buying scheme, which should enable them to save money on their fuel bills.
Wales Together/ Cyd Cymru is a Welsh Government funded energy switching
project. Collective energy switching is where a large number of households come
together to buy their energy, and by doing so Wales Together/ Cyd Cymru can
negotiate better deals, which leads to savings for consumers. The more people
that get involved, the greater the potential to gain a better deal.
Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Members are expected to endorse the scheme
on Tuesday (20 January). Following the signing of the scheme’s Charter, the
Council will then have partner status on the scheme.
Councillor Bernie Attridge, Cabinet Member for Environment, said:
“I would urge all Flintshire residents to register with Cyd Cymru. By joining
together to buy energy, households can achieve better deals. When you register
with Cyd Cymru there is no cost or obligation to switch, but once the offer is
available in March, you will be able to see how much you could save before you
decide whether you want to switch. You will also be able to see how this
compares to existing market tariffs. Last year the scheme helped households
across Wales to save an average of £185 per year on their energy bills.”
Residents can register to receive a no obligation energy price offer in March
either online at www.cydcymru-energy.com or by calling 0800 093 5902.
