EASINGTON MP Grahame Morris is backing The Big Switch campaign to help consumers secure cheaper energy bills.
The drive, which has been launched by consumer champion Which? and 38 Degrees, is a new way for people to buy their energy.
It is the first time in the UK a large number of people have joined together to negotiate a deal with energy companies.
Mr Morris is urging constituents to join its 200,000-strong group of supporters and use their collective power to cut energy bills.
Which? has invited all energy companies to take part and will be negotiating with them to secure the cheapest deal. Energy companies will be asked to submit a market-leading deal and take part in a reverse auction. If a deal is secured, Which? will contact everyone who signed up with a personalised savings estimate and handle the switching process.
Mr Morris said: “Soaring energy bills are driving up inflation and contributing to the cost of living crisis afflicting tens of thousands of families across the North East.”
