Households across the Lothians are being offered the chance to save money on their energy bills through a “collective buying initiative”.
Residents living in Edinburgh, East Lothian and Midlothian will be able to secure a better deal from energy companies through the Scots Together scheme by social enterprise Changeworks.
Householders from other areas will also be able to participate.
Changeworks chief executive Teresa Bray said: “Changeworks is delighted to have successfully co-ordinated the application for the local authority partners.
“Building on the expertise and experience of Cornwall Together, we will make it easier for householders in Scotland to get a better deal. We are pleased to be at the forefront of this Scottish project.”
Scots Together officially launched today and ends on Sunday, March 17.
Representatives from Changeworks will be on hand at the Princes Street Mall Shopping Centre rooftop today to show people how they can take part and save money on their bills.
