Energy deal for Tynedale residents
Published at 08:28, Wednesday, 28 November 2012
NORTHUMBERLAND County Council has joined forces with 11 other local authorities to create one of the first UK collective energy switching schemes.
Those interested in saving money on energy bills are asked to register by Friday, December 14, so the partnership can arrange an auction, in which the energy supplier offering the cheapest tariff will win the contract.
Those registered will then receive a personal offer, with no obligation to accept.

A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
