Collective energy switching - Big Community Switch

We believe people are still paying too much for their energy. Big Community Switch helps residents switch energy suppliers, move to a renewable electricity tariff and save money on their energy bills. Switching with us means you can benefit from the bargaining power of a large group.

How does it work?

  1. Registration: you can register before 3 October for free and without obligation
  2. Auction: an ‘auction’ will be held on 3 October when our pre-vetted energy suppliers will submit bids. The supplier who offered the cheapest tariff will get to offer you a new contract
  3. Personal offer: from 16 October you will receive a personal offer, based on your registration details, and you can see how much money you can save
  4. You decide: the decision is then yours whether you want to accept your offer. There is no obligation to switch, and you will have until 27 November to decide
  5. Take control: if you accept, you will be one of the thousands who have taken control of their energy costs through our collective energy switching scheme
