People Power Collective takes to the road

Posted on - 24th January, 2014 - 5:33pm | Author - | Posted in - Campaigns, Preston News



Back in February 2013 we reported that Preston residents were being encouraged to use ‘People Power’ and join a ground breaking collective energy switching scheme that could mean massive reductions to the cost of heating their homes.

The scheme is back for 2014 and you only have until 17th February to register your interest.

Rising energy prices are eating into already depleted pay packets. Preston people have the power by getting together and collectively asking for a better deal to reduce energy bills and save together.

To find out more about the scheme awareness sessions are variable at Citizenzone in various locations around the city.

Presentations are at:

Lidl Car Park on New Hall Lane on Saturday 25th January at 11am to 3pm

Brookfield Spar, Watling Street Road on Wednesday 29th January at 11am to 4pm

Lidl Car Park on Strand Road on Saturday 8th February at 11am to 3pm

St Margrets Church, Tag Lane in Ingol on Wednesday 12 February at 11am to 4pm

Indoor Market in Preston on Friday 14th February at 11am to 3pm

Sherwood Pub Car Park on Saturday 15th February at 11am to 3pm

Remember to take a recent electricity or gas bill with you.

The scheme allows people who want to switch providers to take part in a ‘reverse auction’. This will take place on 18th February.

You have until midnight on 17 February 2014 to sign up for the scheme (you will need a copy of your energy bills handy). 11,527 people have already signed up!

Call 01772 906355, 906575 or 906353 for more information – or go to for more information about People Power.

The People Power scheme is targeted at all residents in Lancashire, although anyone outside of the county can also register to be a part of it. The scheme is also open to residents who use pre-payment metres.
