Council extends Fairerpower energy scheme

The Skills and Growth Company, Cheshire East Council’s latest arms-length company, has taken its energy offering to Lancashire under the brand name Fairerpower Red Rose.

Established in 2015, the Fairerpower scheme is a not-for-profit partnership between Cheshire East Council and Ovo energy.

With more than 8,000 customers switching to date, the company claims that customers have benefitted from £2.1m in savings on their annual gas and electric bills.

Around 600,000 Lancashire residents will be offered the opportunity to reap the benefits of a local energy offering.

Councillor George Hayes, chairman of the Skills and Growth Company, said: “I am extremely pleased to announce the launch of Fairerpower Red Rose, following the success of the Fairerpower scheme in Cheshire.“Our aim is simple, to alleviate fuel poverty for residents of Lancashire by helping more residents to switch energy providers and offer award-winning customer service.”

Both Cheshire and Lancashire residents who sign up to Fairerpower will benefit from: potential average savings of over £100, no exit fees, three per cent interest reward paid to pay monthly customers on all credit balances, up to £1,000 and award-winning customer service
