Over 1,700 Norwich homes to save at least �156 on annual energy bills
The Big Switch and Save collective switching scheme being run by Norwich City Council will see people pay on average at least �156 a year less on their energy bills.
A total of 1,768 households signed up and an auction saw the Norwich group joined with four other British collectives to get the best deal.

While Co-operative Energy are offering to supply to paper billing customers. Dual fuel customers stand to save on average �156 a year and electricity-only customers �182 a year.
The city council's environmental strategy manager, Richard Willson, who is responsible for the project, said: 'This is a fantastic result. We have shown beyond a doubt that this scheme really can save a meaningful amount of money for people living in the city.
