big community switch

Residents living across Stockton-on-Tees have just over two weeks left to make big savings on their energy bills.
 
The Big Community Switch, offered by Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council in partnership with iChoosr, invites people to join together to form a single buying unit to secure cheaper energy bills.
 
Registration is open until 8pm on Monday 27 November 2017 at www.stockton.gov.uk/bigcommunityswitch and anyone who registers will receive a personal offer highlighting how much they can save. 
 
Last month SSE and Boost Energy competed against a variety of energy companies in an auction to become the energy suppliers for the customers that sign up for the switch.
 
Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, Councillor Mike Smith, said: “The Big Community Switch is a really easy and effective way of saving money on household energy bills.
 
“It is open to all residents, including those who rent or have a prepayment or key card meter so I urge everyone to sign-up to find out how much they can save.”
 
George Frost, iChoosr UK Country Manager, added: “It remains the fact that households which have not switched tariff recently could make significant savings by reviewing their energy contracts.  Council run collective switching schemes provide a safe and easy route for householders to engage with the energy market and will continue to do so.”
