Fairerpower saves Cheshire residents £2m on energy bills
A partnership business set up by Cheshire East Council to help local residents reduce their energy bills has saved households £2m.
More than 7,000 people have now signed up to buy their gas and electricity through Fairerpower, a partnership between the Council and award-winning Ovo Energy, since its launch in March 2015.
Cheshire East residents who have switched to Fairerpower are saving an average of £246 on their annual fixed-tariff bills.
Fairerpower was formed based upon the belief that people were spending too much on their energy bills by not switching providers for years. The not-for-profit organisation aims to offer a competitive energy plan that gives more back to the people of Cheshire.
Now Fairerpower is advising residents to consider a switch to a fixed tariff deal to avoid getting caught out by the fluctuating cost of energy.
Councillor Don Stockton, Cheshire East Council cabinet member for regeneration, said:
“Fairerpower is building trust through award-winning customer service while securing cheaper and fairer prices for local residents across Cheshire. This was our promise when we started and we are delivering and giving many people a cheaper alternative.
“I would urge residents to consider fixing their energy bills before Christmas, as energy costs look set to rise. Visit our website at www.fairerpower.co.uk or call 0800 4086701 to get quote.”
By joining the more than 7,000 people already with Fairerpower you can benefit from:
- Low rates for both electricity and gas;
- Potential average savings of £200 to £300;
- Simple, straightforward billing;
- Fixed 12-month term with our fixed tariff – no increases over that period;

Cheshire East Council became the first local authority in the UK to sell power since the gas and electricity supply system was nationalised in 1948.
Switching to Fairerpower is easy and is an option for all 170,000 households in the borough. Since December 2015, the scheme has been extended to allow residents living in Chester West and Chester to become Fairerpower customers too.
