It's estimated that, during the Coronavirus pandemic, UK households are spending an extra 25 per-cent on their electrcity usage and an additional 17 per-cent on gas.   Now is a good time to seriously look at switching energy provider to get  a better deal.

Big Switch and Save invites householders, businesses, parish councils, village halls and community buildings to sign up to take part in a ‘reverse auction’ where energy providers offer value-for-money tariffs to people who might be thinking about changing their electricity or gas supplier.

Consumers who are then offered a better tariff than their current rate can switch suppliers through the scheme and save money on their energy bills. By grouping consumers together it’s possible to negotiate much lower energy tariffs than an individual switching supplier on their own.  It’s a safe way to switch because it’s simple to take part, it’s free of charge and there’s no commitment required. If you’re not happy with the new tariff offered, you simply continue with your current supplier.

You can register interest in the next auction on-line here.    You'll need to have details of how much gas and electricity you currently use. You can find this on your annual statement from your energy supplier or on your energy bills.

Up to five households can register from the same e-mail address, so if you don’t have e-mail yourself you can ask a friend or family member to register from their e-mail address. For help registering on-line call 0800 0488 285.

The energy supplier with the best deal will be decided at auction on Tuesday 19th May with their best offer following soon after! If you’ve registered you’ll receive an email with an offer based on your usage and details of the best deal from the auction - then you have time to think about whether or not you want to accept the offer. It’s that easy.
