As household budgets continue to become increasingly squeezed, Mayor Ros Jones has announced a new scheme to help local residents drive down their energy bills.
The idea behind The Big Power Switch is simple - by coming together to buy energy, households can get a better deal.
The more households who join the scheme, then the more bargaining power we will have when negotiating with the energy providers.
Ros Jones, Mayor of Doncaster said: "Helping to bring down the cost of living for local people is one of my five key mayoral priorities and this is the first of the schemes we will be implementing to ensure that every household can be on the best possible energy tariff for them.
"Excessive gas and electricity price rises introduced by the big energy companies have contributed to the cost of living crisis faced by many hard working families. This scheme gives local people an opportunity to come together to increase our purchasing power so that we can all save money."
Councillor Christine Mills, Cabinet Member for Environment and Waste added: "Registering your interest in The Big Power Switch is quick and easy to do and all the information you will need to register should be on your last energy bill."
The deadline to register an interest in The Big Power Switch is Tuesday 10th June 2014 and home owners, private tenants and council tenants living in and around Doncaster are all eligible for the scheme (though private tenants should check that their tenancy agreement doesn't restrict them from switching suppliers).
