CHEAPER energy is being made available to households across Hampshire – with the help of people power.

Switch Hampshire allows residents to join together to switch energy suppliers, driving down the price.

It is endorsed by local authorities and is available to sign up to until February 17.

It is intended to take the stress out of swapping energy suppliers by testing the market for the best price. However, there is no obligation to change supplier once a quote has been sent.

Switch Hampshire ran successfully from May to July 2013.

The scheme covers residents who use gas, electricity or both and also those who use pre-payment meters. Residents do not have to agree to pay their bills by direct debit or online if they do decide to switch.
