Cornwall Together, the first round of UK Together, saved over 1,000 people in Cornwall an average of £133 with some households saving over £700. Over £150,000 went back into the pockets of Cornish households.
Birmingham and Solihull Together is for everyone – the more people who join, the more we save. But in particular Birmingham and Solihull Together aims to reach the vulnerable and take step towards tackling fuel poverty and improving public health. Birmingham and Solihull Togethers not just about saving money, it’s about being part of something and making a positive difference.
Energy bills have risen by over £700 on average since 2004 – that”s an increase of 140%. In 2013 we face a 50/50 chance of black outs. As the power supply gets squeezed, prices will continue to rise. According to the Committee on Climate Change, energy bills could go up by as much as £600 as we head into the next few decades of uncertainty. Recent price rises are likely to push an additional 300,000 people into fuel poverty. That could mean another 65 people a day will die because they can”t afford to heat their homes. We have been sleepwalking into this crisis for years and we believe it will continue to get worse if we don’t try and address this problem together.
So we are asking people in Birmingham and Solihull to join us and see how much money they can save by getting together and buy energy in bulk. Think of it a little like three people going to the supermarket and buying a 3 for 2 product…everyone gets the product a little cheaper by buying together!
