Surrey energy users get 'collective' power to cut bills


Surrey County Council (SCC) said it hoped to cut up to £7.5m from people's bills, saving households £250 a year.

"This is one of the first and biggest schemes of its kind in the country," said Councillor Denise Le Gal.

Clare Francis, of comparison website MoneySupermarket, said the scheme would not be the best deal for everyone.

Collective switching, pioneered in Belgium and the Netherlands, allows groups of customers, often organised by local councils or a community groups to choose the best rate by changing tariff at the same time.
