Jenny Willott, Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, is urging local residents to sign up to The Big Deal campaign in order to save hundreds of pounds on their energy bills.

The Big Deal is a national campaign for cheaper energy. It brings people together to harness their collective buying power and deliver lower bills.

The Big Deal launched nationwide this week, and has received support from senior figures in every major party. Five thousand people have already signed up in just a few days.

Similar schemes across the world have led to savings of 16.5%. In Britain the equivalent would be about £200 per person.

Jenny Willott MP said:

"Energy bills are one of the biggest worries for Cardiff Central residents, who often feel powerless after years of price rises. The Coalition Government is working hard to make the energy market work better for customers, and The Big Deal can contribute to this."

Henry de Zoete, Co-founder of The Big Deal, said:

"We are delighted that Jenny Willott has chosen to support The Big Deal. Energy bills have become completely unaffordable. By joining together we can take on the Big Six and demand cheaper bills. It's all about people power - more people means lower bills."
