HULL: Residents have been given more time to register for the collective Energy Switch scheme.
Hull City Council is working in partnership with 11 other councils and more than 13,000 people have already signed up.
The deadline to register for the scheme has now been extended until January 28 to get the best deal for residents and maximise potential savings on their energy bills. Households will then receive their offers in February.
A major factor behind the extension was that a number of the major energy companies were unwilling to take part in the auction before Christmas.

HULL: Yorkshire Water is using a mix of James Bond-like technologies to prevent frost damage to water pipes this winter.
Sam Pearson, Yorkshire Water's very own Q, said: "We might not be fighting international terrorists, but we know from experience sharp changes in temperature can have a very damaging impact on pipes, often leading to an increase in bursts and disruption to water supplies.
"We have a dedicated team whose job it is to ensure we're winter-ready and monitor all activity occurring along our underground network of pipes."
The technology includes 4x4 vehicles that can easily access all areas, telemetry controls to monitor the 34,000km pipe network 24 hours a day, seven days a week and using forecast data to predict weather patterns.
