Edinburgh City Council is hoping a deal with a power firm could save council house tenants£40 each, reported the Herald (18 Jan p2).

A report to go before the housing committee says an alliance with an energy supplier would lead to lower bills and more efficiency.

A council spokesman said the competition for new customers was hotting up with the deregulation of electricity in the UK only three months away.

He said: '...the council could supply a stable customer base in one go. In return for each successful recommendation signed up, the council would receive a payment which would have been spent on customer recruitment.'

The link-up could also fund energy efficient schemes such as loft insulation and double glazing.
