Peterborough Residents Save Thousands On Energy Bills

Peterborough residents are on their way to saving thousands of pounds on their energy bills thanks to a new partnership between the city council and British Gas.

Nearly 100 people have signed up to the local energy package in the first six days and it is estimated that those who did will save £4,000 just by switching.

More than 20 people also inquired about accessing free home efficiency measures under a scheme involving energy suppliers.

The council is reminding residents there is still time to take advantage of the Peterborough Energy Package, which is one of the first of its type to be launched by an energy company and a local authority.

The package has been designed to help Peterborough residents reduce their energy bills not just over the next 12 months, but in future years.

Earlier this year the council successfully secured almost £4 million of government money from the Green Deal Communities Fund.
