Plans could save households £200 a year from their bills
Residents could save up to £200 a year from their energy bills through a scheme organised by Brent Council.
The ‘collective energy switching’ idea, which was agreed on Monday, (4), works by getting thousands of people to agree to switch their energy provider.
It then allows them to negotiate a better price as a result of the number of people switching at the same time.
Residents will need to register their interest in switching with the council, who will then negotiate with respective energy companies.

Residents are under no obligation to take up the better rate if they change their mind.
Cllr Muhammed Butt, Leader of Brent Council said: “I know how tough it is for people in Brent at the moment. This new scheme will put up to £200 a year back into peoples pockets, just when they need it most.
