East Riding residents who register for YORSwitch to try to make a saving on their energy bills will receive an instant offer.

More than 47,500 people took part in this successful auction (via East Riding of Yorkshire Council and non-council partners), and as part of the council's pledge, the electricity tariffs will be 100% renewable which will both save residents money and reduce carbon emissions.

The winning suppliers in this round are So Energy, for dual fuel and electric-only (both online; monthly direct debit); SSE, for dual fuel and electric-only (both paper; monthly direct debit); and E.ON, for pre-payment meter.

Councillor Chris Matthews, portfolio holder for strategic property and infrastructure at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "It is great news that these environmentally friendly companies have won the YORSwitch auction in this round, and despite the uncertain times we face because of the pandemic this winter, the YORSwitch team is still here to help the scheme carry on.

"I know that the average savings through the scheme is about £150 per household, and 99% of people who've registered with us can be guaranteed to make a saving."
