Energy Relief - Brand Final

SWITCH & SAVE WITH ENERGY RELIEF

8th July 2016

Cardiff City FC Foundation is pleased to announce their partnership with Energy Relief. The first not for profit energy switching site in the UK (where you decide exactly where your switching fee goes).

Launched in Spring 2016 Energy Relief’s mission is to generate millions for charities and community projects by helping people save money on their domestic energy bills and donating the ‘switching fee’ to the consumers’ charity of choice.

How it works

Thousands of people across the UK switch their energy provider to ensure they have the best supplier for their needs and that they are getting the best deal[1]. Unbeknown to many switching site users, the average fee for every switch is approximately £20 for a single fuel and £40 for a dual fuel (electricity and gas), which goes in to the pocket of the switching provider.

Energy Relief donate 100% of the switching fee back into the community, with the user choosing which charity or project they’d like to donate their switching fee to at the end of each switch.

The switching engine’ that energy relief use is approved by Ofgem[2] which means consumers can take confidence when using the site of the rates displayed and their validity.

Cardiff City FC Foundation are delighted to be a part of this revolutionary idea and are excited to have the opportunity to increase fundraising through the donations of energy customers on the Energy Relief site.

Gavin Hawkey, Foundation Director at Cardiff City FC Foundation commented:

‘We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Energy Relief. Proceeds from the partnership go directly to tackling inequalities and supporting children, families and adults in South Wales. I encourage all Foundation supporters to see if they can save money on their energy bills by using the services of Energy Relief.’ 

Nick Proctor, the Co- Founder of Energy Relief commented, ‘I’m delighted to have Cardiff City FC Foundation on board with Energy Relief. The opportunity to generate money for such a great cause through the site is why we set Energy Relief up in the first place. I can’t wait to hear how much we’ve raised a year from now.’
