Fwd: 68 per cent of households in Lancashire could be missing out on energy savings of £264 a year [OFFICIAL]

Dear Member of Parliament, Ofgem's campaign to get energy customers to make sure they are on the best deal, Be An Energy Shopper, has found that 68 per cent of customers in Lancashire could be missing out on savings of around £264. This is the difference between the average standard variable tariff and the cheapest fixed deal. We issued a press release today setting out the potential savings for energy customers (copy attached). The story has had wide pick up across the region and has been carried on regional broadcast media throughout the day.

Some key facts:

· 68 per cent of households in Lancashire could be missing out on energy savings of around £264 a year
· Around 337,000[1] households in Lancashire are likely to still be on standard tariffs and could be better off moving to a fixed deal
· Shopping around has never been easier with everything you need at

The Be An Energy Shopper campaign was launched in Parliament on the 7 May 2014, sponsored by Albert Owen MP. The guest speaker was the Secretary of State, and it was well attended by MPs from all parties.

If you would like further information, draft copy for your blog, newspaper column, facebook or twitter account, and/or copies of our Be An Energy Shopper leaflet, please let me know. I attach a link to our Be An Energy Shopper website which gives people everything they need to know about how to switch supplier and has specific information for tenants, students and on how to read your meter.
