GAS and electricity bills for people in East Hampshire and the borough of Havant could fall if they register for a new service.
Hampshire County Council is working with other local authorities across the county in the Switch Hampshire scheme which uses consumers’ combined purchasing power to seek a better deal on their bills.
The authority says customers could save between £60 to £200 a year on bills by joining the scheme. Running a collective switching scheme three times a year could lead to potential savings of up to £25m for Hampshire residents.
With approximately 760,000 households in Hampshire, if just two per cent signed up to switch energy supplier through the service, it would give a combined purchasing power of just over 15,000 customers
Registration is open until June 3.
After the registration closing date, Switch Hampshire will begin negotiations with energy companies.
