Switching Energy Suppliers Could Put A Smile On Your Face

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 11:04 by Trish Baker

Home owners and tenants are being given a great opportunity to save money on their energy bills with a new collective switching scheme launching next week.

East Northamptonshire Council (ENC) is teaming up with leading collective switching expert, iChoosr, to take part in the Big Community Switch in a bid to help you get a better deal on your gas and electricity. More »

From 1 December, ENC's free scheme, known as 'Switch Save Smile,' invites you to join forces and pay less for your energy. The more people who register, the greater the chance of getting a competitive energy deal.

Energy suppliers are then invited to take part in the auction to bid against each other to offer the best deal. This takes place in February 2016.

The cheapest tariff offered will win, and everyone registered for the scheme will then be sent details of how much money they could save, together with a no-obligation offer to switch. There was an average of £300 saving per household in iChoosr's last auction.

The process is very simple:

1. Register – Anyone who pays a household energy bill can register for the scheme, even if you don't live in East Northamptonshire. The quickest and easiest way to register is online. You just need your annual energy statement (or any other gas/electricity bill) for information about your existing tariff and consumption. Registration must be completed by 1 February 2016.

2. Consider the offer – The supplier who puts forward the cheapest tariffs gets to offer you a new contract. You will receive a personal offer, tailored to your household and will show you how much money you might save.

3. Make a decision – You have plenty of time to decide whether you want to switch or not. There is no obligation to accept the offer. If you do accept, iChoosr will take care of the entire switching process.

A sign up session will be held at the Rushden Customer Service Centre (Newton Road) on 9 December, 10am – 3pm. Anyone can drop in to register there and then. Don't forget your annual energy statement or latest gas/electricity bill.

Leader of East Northamptonshire Council, Steven North, said:

"Lots of people haven't got time to compare energy suppliers or find the whole process quite daunting. This is why I'm pleased we're taking part in the Big Community Switch. It's a hassle-free way of making sure you're getting a good deal. All you need to do is register, which takes less than 10 minutes, and then let iChoosr do all the hard work for you. The more people that register, the greater the savings could be."
