Save money – go energy shopping

  • CLLR Mercer Quote Card (2)

Residents are being reminded to sign up to the Charnwood Big Switch for the chance of saving more than £240 a year on their energy bills.

The Council launched the Charnwood Big Switch last month and residents are being urged to register before the first auction takes place on October 8.

Cllr Paul Mercer, lead member for housing said: “There are only a few weeks left for residents to register for the first auction.

“This scheme can help residents get a better deal on their energy bills by switching suppliers. We understand that it can be daunting for some people to switch their suppliers which is why we’ve launched this collective scheme.

“Residents don’t have to switch if they don’t want to but by registering, they will be able to see if they are able to get a better deal and save money.”

Charnwood Big Switch is delivered by the Council and iChoosr, an independent specialist provider in collective energy switching.

Collective switching gives people the opportunity to group together and pay less for their energy. Residents can switch electric or dual fuel and can choose to have paper bills or to manage their accounts online.

iChoosr hold three auctions a year and energy suppliers compete to provide the lowest priced tariff in the auction.

It is free for residents to register their interest and registrations for the first auction are now open.
