Charnwood Big Switch

Due to high demand, the deadline for bulky waste collections at 3pm today has been brought forward to 1pm. Any collections booked after will now be collected on Saturday August 24 and not Monday August 19. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

The Charnwood Big Switch is a collective energy switching scheme to help residents change suppliers and save money on their energy bills.

The scheme 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.

There will be three auctions each year where energy suppliers bid against each other to provide the lowest priced tariff.

The cheapest supplier wins the auction and each registered household can then decide if they want to switch or not. There is no obligation for people to switch if they do not want to.

Registrations for the Charnwood Big Switch are now open now

Register for the Charnwood Big Switch and find out if you could save money on your energy bills.

The first auction will take place on October 8, 2019. 

If you do not have internet access and want help with your registration, please call the Council on 01509 634651.
