Collective Switching

Save Money and Time on Fuel Bills

North Lincolnshire Council’s successful collective switching scheme offers you a chance to find a better deal before winter and to keep fuel bills as low as possible. The scheme re-opened in December and has so far saved local households collectively over £20,000 on fuel bills, with average savings of over £230 per resident.

Many residents have highlighted the great savings to be made and how simple the switching process is. Collective switching enables households to sign up to a scheme that allows an intermediary to enter an auction with energy companies on their behalf, to secure a discounted energy price.

Working with iChoosr, the UK’s leading provider of collective switching, residents have until Monday 1 February 2016 to register for the scheme online.

The timetable for registering your interest is:

Winter Auction 2015

  • Registration opens – 8 December 2015
  • Auction – 2 February 2016
  • Offers out – 12 February 2016 
  • Closure – 14 March 2016

For further information and to register on line please visit the Big Community Switch website.

To request a paper form to be sent out to you or for more information about the scheme, please contact North Lincolnshire Council on 01724 297000. The deadline for returning paper forms is Friday 29 January 2016.

Cllr John Briggs, cabinet member for asset management, culture and housing at North Lincolnshire Council, said:

“Many people are paying too much for their energy and rising fuel bills are a real concern. Some people have been reluctant to switch suppliers because they are not sure how to, or they don’t have time to compare the different tariffs. Collective switching makes it safe and easy to switch.

"The more people that register, the cheaper the bills will be.”
