Peterborough Energy is celebrating its second birthday with a fantastic present - the 7,000th local household switching to its competitive fuel tariff.
The savvy resident joined the growing band of savers making the switch three weeks ago, marking the second anniversary of the Peterborough tariff which launched in May 2015.
They can now look forward to making annual savings of around £122*. Their switch takes Peterborough residents' collective savings to just shy of an impressive £1.4 million.
Councillor John Holdich, Leader of Peterborough City Council, said: "This is a great birthday present for Peterborough Energy, and fantastic news that more households are choosing to join me on our local tariff to make significant savings for their families.
“I hope even more residents will consider making the switch which is simple and can be done entirely online, although for anyone who would prefer to speak to a customer service representative switches can be arranged by phone or during a home visit. The level of savings achieved by some customers is a good indication that many Peterborough households are still paying too much for their energy."
With many attractive deals and incentives on offer the Peterborough Energy tariff offers both excellent value and customer experience. The benefits include one of the most value-for-money gas and electricity tariffs for households with pre-payment meters (‘pay as you go’ customers) and great customer service from OVO Energy, which manages and services the tariff.
OVO were named uSwitch Supplier of the Year for the third year in a row in 2017.
One of the latest customers to switch to Peterborough Energy was Mrs Binyon from Werrington, whose annual saving is £163.
She said: "I'd heard of Peterborough Energy before, but was prompted to switch following a visit from Matt Mitchell, one of the energy advisors in the city. He was a lovely man, and explained the tariff in great depth to me. He also gave me an energy saving pack, which really impressed me.
"I'm also hoping to refer my mum to the scheme and earn an Amazon gift certificate."
Other benefits include a three per cent Interest Reward** on all account balances in credit and a £20 Amazon.co.uk gift certificate*** for any customers who refer friends or family once their switch is confirmed.
