Householders are being urged to save money on their energy bills and get price protection for two winters with Your Energy Sussex.
The council-supported energy supplier has launched a new energy tariff which will lock in the price you pay for gas and electricity for 24 months.
It is currently one of the leading two-year deals on the market and cheaper than one-year fixed tariffs currently on offer from five of the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers.
By signing up to Your Energy Sussex residents will also get 100% renewable electricity, great customer service and a commitment to supporting the local community.
Your Energy Sussex is a not-for-profit energy supplier that uses the surplus it generates to create a Fuel Poverty Fund to help local people who are struggling to pay their energy bills.
Deborah Urquhart, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “We launched Your Energy Sussex in 2018 to encourage more of our residents to switch and save money on their bills and help them engage with the energy market. Many people have never switched and could be paying up to £300 more than they need to each year if they are on their energy supplier’s most expensive ‘standard variable’ tariff.
“Your Energy Sussex offers 100% renewable electricity, sourced from UK-based wind and solar generators, and our ambition is to provide more locally generated energy to Sussex customers. For every megawatt hour of electricity purchased for our customers, we also purchase a Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGO) certificate, which proves the electricity is certified as being sourced either directly from the renewable generators or through a green wholesale energy supplier.
“This new tariff from Your Energy Sussex offers price protection over two winters, which is a time of year when we tend to have the lights and the heating on longer. Being a longer-term fixed deal also avoids the effort and hassle of having to shop around for a new deal in 12 months’ time.”
Your Energy Sussex was launched by West Sussex County Council in February 2018 and is supported by 12 local authorities including East Sussex County Council and Brighton & Hove City Council.
