Barnsley Council is excited to announce that something great is heading to the borough - the Barnsley energy tariff, an energy tariff dedicated solely to Barnsley residents.
The council-approved energy tariff will provide residents with fair, transparent, competitive prices and deals – all whilst putting the needs of residents first.
The new tariff will go live to Barnsley residents soon and the council are urging residents to consider the switch so they can reap the many great benefits it will offer:
- Great prices – residents could save money on their energy bills as the tariff offers fair and consistently competitive prices
- Great customer service – residents will be put first every time and put on the best tariff for them year after year
- Great transparency – residents won’t need to worry about any hidden costs or sudden surprises
- Great for Barnsley – residents across the borough can look forward to being healthier, happier and warmer as a result of fairer prices and deals
Barnsley Council will be leading the way as ambassadors for the new tariff by switching council houses on to the tariff when they become empty. This will include removing all pre-payment meters and replacing them with smart meters which means new tenants can benefit from better deals on their energy as soon as they move in.
Cllr Roy Miller, Cabinet Spokesperson for Place, said: "We’re absolutely delighted to be launching the Barnsley energy tariff and hope to see many residents making the switch over the coming months.
"With around 11,572 households currently living in fuel poverty across our borough, the launch of our own tariff provides a great opportunity to reduce these figures by helping our residents access fairer energy deals that are right for them.
"It’s really easy to fall into the trap of sticking with an existing energy provider – whether that be due to convenience or fear of leaping into the great unknown.
"It’s actually estimated that 40 per cent of people nationwide have never switched supplier and could be paying around £300 per year more than they need to. With the cold months looming, not to mention the expense of Christmas, this is the perfect time for residents to make the switch, reduce energy bills and keep warm and well."
The not-for-profit nature of the scheme means residents can be put first and benefit directly through lower energy bills and fairer deals. So go on Barnsley, get ready to switch to greater things!
