Your Energy Sussex – West Sussex County Council launches its own, local, not-for-profit energy supplier

By | All Newsletters, Around the Parish, Draft Newsletter

West Sussex County Council has launched its own, local, not-for-profit energy supplier, called ‘Your Energy Sussex’, providing competitively-priced gas and electricity to homes across the county. The County Council is working on the initiative with district and borough councils across West Sussex and Louise Goldsmith, Leader of Chichester West Division of the County Council has asked that this news be shared across our community.

The aim is to encourage more of the residents to compare their energy costs, switch regularly and, ultimately, reduce their energy costs. The most recent figures from Ofgem show that the majority of energy customers have not switched their tariff or supplier in the last year and by doing so could save an average £300 per year.

‘Your Energy Sussex’ is different to other energy suppliers. It has established a Fuel Poverty Fund and uses its profits to support residents who are struggling to pay their energy bills. It also works hard to ensure its gas and electricity tariffs are always competitive and contacts customers by letter and phone to make sure they stay on their best energy tariff.

‘Your Energy Sussex’ will also help customers who stay in credit on their pre-payment meters to switch to a credit meter if they would like to, thus saving them money in the long term. Residents interested in getting a quote or switching to ‘Your Energy Sussex’ should visit or call 0800 952 0001.

THE DELL – We have been given an award by the Big Lottery to finance outdoor fitness equipment placed in The Dell recreation ground off Mill Road, West Ashling.

There are six pieces of equipment available to help towards an all-round workout. So do come and try it and have fun. Parking is in School Dell, alongside.

SOUTHBROOK ROAD – There is also a playground for the under 12s situated in Southbrook Road, West Ashling beside the Village Hall, so all members of the family are catered for within the parish.

Many thanks, enjoy  your holiday
