Peterborough residents can pre-register for new city-wide energy tariffs that will be amongst the cheapest in the country.
In January, Peterborough City Council entered into a partnership with OVO Energy to establish dual and single fuel (electricity only) energy tariffs that are exclusive to residents with Peterborough local authority area postcodes.
The new tariffs will be jointly branded between OVO Energy and the council as Peterborough Energy and will offer a local alternative to the Big Six energy providers.
Residents will be able to sign up and switch to the Peterborough Energy tariffs from Monday April 27 and can now register their interest ahead of the launch.
Council leader Councillor Marco Cereste said: “Our partnership with OVO strikes a great deal for city residents and could save them hundreds of pounds every year.
“This will put money back in their pocket and help to reduce fuel poverty across the city.
“People can register their interest over the coming weeks and this means they will get contacted when the tariffs go live at the end of April.
“These new Peterborough Energy tariffs show our committment to get the best offer for residents and will save most people a lot of money.”
Craig Morley, managing director of OVO Communities, said: “We are excited to be working with Peterborough City Council to offer better value energy to residents.
“We will be working with key community representatives throughout Peterborough to ensure we are getting to speak to those customers that will most benefit from the new tariff.
“With considerable savings expected we hope residents really get behind this new energy offering.”
Customers who pay by monthly direct debit can switch from April 27.
Pre-payment, also known as pay-as-you-go, customers will be able sign up soon after.
