Queensgate shopping centre vouchers worth £230 are up for grabs for people who sign up to Peterborough Energy - Peterborough City Council’s new energy tariff.
The council has joined forces with OVO Energy, an award-winning energy supplier, to offer some of the region’s most competitive deals which have been available to residents since the start of the summer.
So far over 750 households have switched to pay monthly fixed and variable Peterborough Energy tariffs, cumulatively saving more than £160,000, with an average saving of £230 each.
The 1000th person to switch to these tariffs will receive the Queensgate voucher - the value reflecting the average customer saving to date.
These tariffs have already been singled out by national publications including Which? and The Guardian for their competitive pricing.
Councillor John Holdich, leader of the council, said: “With winter just around the corner, now is a great opportunity to make a switch allowing enough time to change your energy provider and then start saving money for the Christmas period.
“Hundreds of Peterborough residents are already seeing the cost-saving benefits of switching to Peterborough Energy, so why not join them and you may also secure that lucky reward of the Queensgate voucher.”
Peterborough Energy is now also bringing competitively priced gas and electricity to all city residents with pre-payment meters, with potential savings of £64 each year.
Councillor Holdich added: “Pay-as-you-go customers have often struggled to get good deals on gas and electricity and so are more likely to fall victim to fuel poverty.
“Peterborough City Council set up Peterborough Energy because we wanted to help residents have access to fairer deals for their energy and help those who need it most - those paying too much for their energy.”
