Chance for school staff to save money on their energy bills

Staff at Shropshire’s maintained schools and academies could save money on their energy bills, thanks to a new partnership between Shropshire Council and energy company SSE.

Shropshire Council and SSE have launched the new Shropshire Community Energy tariff. It’s cheaper than SSE’s Standard tariff and is exclusively available to Shropshire residents, Shropshire Council staff and those working for the council’s partner organisations. It allows customers to fix their energy prices for two years at this reduced rate, protecting them against price rises.

If you’re currently on SSE’s Standard tariff you’ll be able to transfer to the new Shropshire tariff and benefit from the reduced rate with no exit fees applied.

For everyone who switches to the new Shropshire Community Energy tariff, SSE will pay Shropshire Council a fee, and the council will put this money towards the cost of running museums and other cultural assets.

Under the partnership, people will also be able to access advice and support about ways to save money through energy-saving measures, such as loft insulation and boiler maintenance cover.
