The Big Community Switch

The Big Community Switch brings together a lot of people to buy energy. The more people that join up, the greater the purchasing power to get cheaper energy bills. You can register for free with no obligation to switch.

An auction is organised and the energy supplier who offers the best tariff will be able to offer you a new contract.
All national energy suppliers are eligible to take part in the auction.

After the auction you will receive a personal offer which will tell you how much you could save. You can then decide whether or not to accept the offer and switch energy suppliers. There is no charge, even if you decide not to accept the offer.

More information can be found on the Big Community Switch website.
