Dear Headteacher

Please be aware that the Council underwent a tender process in June 2008
for our electricity and gas supplies.

The results are as follows:

Previous Electricity Supplier        New Electricity Supplier      Contract
Date

Southern Electric                    E.On                        1st July 2008
to 1st Nov 2008 (four months)

NPower                               NPower                       1st July 2008
to 1st Nov 2008 (four months)


Previous Gas Supplier                New Gas Supplier             Contract
Date

NPower                               NPower                       1st July 2008
to 1st Jun 2009 (11 months)


The Council have now joined the purchasing consortium Yorkshire Purchasing
Organisation (YPO) who tender out our electricity and gas on our behalf. As
we have seen excessive increases in energy prices over the past year it was
felt that in order to reduce escalating costs the prospect of bulk purchasing
through YPO was of greater financial benefit than opting to go out on our own
as we did in our previous three year contract (terminated 30th June 2008).
Unfortunately due to us having been on a (very good) three year deal, energy
prices have now caught up with us and you will now see your energy costs




                 Warrington – a four star beacon authority
increase by 50-60%.

YPO's main electricity contracts run from 1st November, hence our interim
four month contract at present, and their gas contract runs from 1st June.

The process of paying your NPower gas and electricity (if applicable) will stay
exactly the same as the past three years.

I have been informed that E.On have sent out the first electricity bills direct to
the supply address. If you are due to receive an electricity bill from E.On I
would be extremely grateful if you could forward it on to me. I apologies for
any inconvenience this may cause but as this is your first bill from E.On we
have to be sure that the information given on the bill is correct to pay. The bills
have been sent out to the supply address in error, due to a computer error on
E.On's side. As this interim period is for four months only you will be billed
monthly not quarterly, as with Southern Electric.


If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
