Sustainable Merton is working with the London Borough of Merton to give all Merton residents the opportunity to potentially save money on their gas and electricity bills. Along with 20 other London boroughs, Merton has signed up to a collective bidding process which aims to offer a better deal for those who register.

This is quite a revolutionary idea and is being supported by the government because it is felt too many people are paying too much for their energy and failing to shop around for cheaper tariffs.

The opportunity to register for this scheme is limited to this month so we would encourage you to register at www.biglondonenergyswitch.org.uk before the end of March. The scheme is open to all Merton residents so please feel free to tell your friends and family about it.

Once registration is closed all the energy companies are invited to offer their best prices to everyone who has registered. You will then receive details of exactly how much money you could potentially save by switching if you accept the offer. There is no guarantee that the new tariff you are offered will be less than your present one, but there is no obligation to accept the offer. By registering an interest now you are not committing yourself to anything.

For more information please contact Mike at Sustainable Merton on 07788 432 489. Alternatively contact Merton Council on 020 8274 4901 or email future.merton@merton.gov.uk or see http://www.merton.gov.uk/environment/sustainability-climate/climatechange/what-can-you-do_/collective_energy_switching.htm
