13 local authorities have signed up to the scheme, including Blackpool Council, which since it’s launch last year has helped more than 35,000 households save money on their energy bills.
The scheme can also help businesses by receiving free advice using the broker service ‘Make it cheaper’.
Blackpool Council leader Simon Blackburn said: “A lot of people are still paying too much for their gas and electricity. People are afraid to switch; they don’t have the time to compare suppliers; they don’t trust the suppliers or think it involves a lot of hassle.
“That is why we organise an auction for you and take the hassle out of switching.
“We are delighted we can light Blackpool Tower, an iconic landmark recognised across the country, in support of this scheme.”
