Peterborough Energy welcomes 6,000th customer!
Peterborough Energy, the council's energy tariff offered exclusively for residents of the city, welcomed its 6,000th switcher at the start of this year taking Peterborough residents' cumulative savings to just shy of £1.4 million.
Councillor John Holdich, Leader of Peterborough City Council, said: "I'm delighted that 6,000 households have joined me on the Peterborough Energy tariff. The level of savings achieved by some of the customers is a good indication that many Peterborough households are still paying too much for their energy.”
The news of the milestone was followed by price hikes by ‘Big Six’ suppliers and an announcement by Ofgem that a temporary cap is to be placed on prepayment meters, following the result of the Competition and Markets Authority's two-year investigation of the energy market.
The cap aims to protect Pay As You Go (PAYG) customers who have fewer, more expensive, tariffs open to them.
Addressing Ofgem’s plan for a price cap, Councillor Holdich said: "In light of Ofgem’s announcement I’d encourage everyone to shop around. Peterborough Energy’s PAYG tariff is already below the level of the price cap.”
Formed in partnership with OVO Energy, Peterborough Energy aims to offer competitively priced electricity and gas tariffs. Recently announced as uSwitch Supplier of the Year for the third year running in 2017, OVO Energy prides itself on excellent customer service.
There are other attractive incentives too including a three per cent interest rate on account balances for customers who pay monthly and a £20 Amazon gift certificate for customers who switch and then refer others to do the same*.
