Austin backs collective switching to lower energy bills

Dudley MP Ian Austin is backing a campaign which could cut fuel bills by 15%.

The Big Deal brings people together to lower the price of energy. It helps consumers switch providers and negotiates with energy companies for the best deal.

Annual energy bills have been allowed to rise by £300 for the average household whilst profits for the Big Six energy companies have continued to rise.

Similar campaigns in other countries have led to a 15% reduction in the price people pay for their bills, which equates to around £200 for the average household in the UK. If more people sign up to The Big Deal, the better position they will be in to negotiate.

Ian Austin said:

“People in Dudley tell me again and again that they are struggling to keep up with the rising cost of energy bills.

“Labour has already pledged to freeze energy bills until 2017 if they win the next General Election, but I know that people need help now. That is why I am backing The Big Deal. I hope that people will sign up and take the opportunity to collectively lower their gas and electricity bills.”
