We have teamed up with Qwest Services and Octopus Energy to launch a new local energy offer for residents living in the Cheshire West Region and beyond.
The scheme, known as Qwest Energy, offers a full range of competitive tariffs to suit prepayment meter, standard meters and smart meter households. In addition to no exit fees, all electricity is 100% renewable as standard and profits are re-invested back into local communities through the Community Fund.
Residents are encouraged to see if they can make a saving on their energy bill by getting a quote from Qwest Energy. Simply visit the Qwest Energy website and have to hand details of your current supplier, your tariff name and your annual consumption figures in kWh.
Addressing Energy in Cheshire West
Cheshire West and Chester Borough Council recognises the importance of saving energy and tackling the causes of climate change at a local level.
To help minimise our impact on the environment we have introduced a number of initiatives and policies which will help reduce the amount of energy we consume and its associated carbon emissions.
For more information on the work of the energy and carbon reduction team including our sustainability commitment and green house gas emissions figures see below.
