Counting down the days…

Scotland’s first collective switching project, Scots Together, runs until 17 March 2013.

Scots Together is a collective buying group bringing people together across Scotland to get a better price on gas and electricity, just as energy watchdog OFGEM announces that further gas and electricity price hikes are on the horizon.

The project brings people together to get a better deal from energy companies by buying their energy collectively. The more people that sign up, the better the deal becomes. It’s not only a free service, it’s also impartial, no obligation and the switching process is easy.

People just have to register a few details at Scots Together to see what they could save. So far our biggest single saving has been £768, with plenty of folk saving into the £100s and an average of £220 so far.

With only 11 days to go we’re relying on a bit of community spirit to help spread the word! Here are a few things you and your local community group can do to help:

Share the news! Please tell your community about the scheme. To order a media pack (posters, flyers and text for newsletters and blogs etc) email Lauren.

Use your blog, social media and website to spread the word and drive people to the website, www.scotstogether.com – you can also help by sharing Changeworks facebookblog and twitter posts with your own followers.

Don’t miss out – have a go yourself and see what you could save! If you’re happy with the result please let us know :-)

Read our briefing and FAQs to find out more about the scheme and our involvement. You can also read the terms and conditions on the Scots Together page.
