Dudley Council is giving residents the chance to save money on their energy bills by signing up to the latest energy switch scheme.

This initiative, part of a national government program, allows councils to come together and take part in a collective energy switching auction, ensuring the best deals through bulk buying.

The last auction, which took place in July, saw over 3500 Dudley residents register to switch.

Now, people can register for the upcoming auction on October 3 and have the option to switch to the energy supplier offering the best deal.

It's important to note that there is no obligation to switch.

Councillor Laura Taylor-Childs, the cabinet member for housing and safer communities, said: "We are delighted to be working with ichoosr for the second time this year.

"This is a great opportunity for our residents to potentially save money on their energy bills."
