Householders have until Monday to sign up to a scheme that will help them save money on their energy bills.
The collective energy buying scheme launched by Herts County Council last month works by combining the buying power of customers in the county with that of two million others from across the country.
There is no obligation to switch supplier, but each household has the potential to save up to £200 a year.
The council will be negotiating on behalf of customers to get the best deal, which will see energy suppliers invited to bid their lowest price.
Those signed up will have three weeks to decide whether to switch to the new low price or stay with their current supplier.
So far nearly 7,500 people nationwide have registered and the more that sign up the cheaper people’s bills could be.
