Last chance to save on fuel bills with Exeter together
THERE are only a few days left to take advantage of the city's money saving energy-switching scheme Exeter Together.
The scheme, which allows people to make savings on their energy bills, closes at midnight on Sunday, March 17.
Launched by Exeter City Council, Exeter Together is helping people from Exeter and surrounding areas save an average of £220 on their fuel bills by joining the innovative collective switching scheme.
The campaign has gained support from the likes of TV chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and city MP Ben Bradshaw, as well as leading regional businesses including the Met Office and Source for Business, both of which have encouraged employees to find out more about the campaign and how they could save money.

Thousands of switches are predicted during the final days and Exeter City Council is urging those thinking about switching to act fast.
Councillor Rachel Sutton, councillor for sustainable development and transport, said: "Everyone has the right to switch energy suppliers, but unfortunately not enough people do this, for reasons such as not knowing how to do it, or thinking it will take too much time.
"Latest statistics show that around 50 per cent of the UK's population do not switch, which is a shame given that energy bills signify one of the biggest household expenses.
"Although average savings equate to around £220 per household, one person has saved more than £800 through the Exeter Together scheme, and when you think it only takes around five minutes to register it is not a bad time investment." The registration process consists of people calling or logging onto the website with their utility bill to hand, and going through the step-by-step process.
Exeter Together has also made a video on website www.exetertogether.com in which Cllr Rachel Sutton explains the campaign.
Further help is at hand for older people requiring assistance with registration, who can contact Age UK Exeter 01392 202092 to make an appointment to see an adviser at the charity's centre in Cowick Street, Exeter.
Alternatively, people can also visit the Citizens Advice Bureau on King William Street, Exeter, each weekday afternoon (except Wednesday) between 1pm and 3pm, where help is on offer for people who might need additional assistance using the Exeter Together website.
People are advised to bring their latest fuel bill.
The Exeter Together team will also be in Bedford Square, Exeter, on Saturday, March 16.
