Collective Switching

Save Money and Time on Fuel Bills

A scheme has just re-opened that has so far saved local households collectively over £20,000 on fuel bills, with average savings of over £190 per resident.

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. 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 2 February 2015 to register for the scheme.

The timetable for registering your interest is:

  • Registration opened – 2 December 2014
  • Auction – 3 February 2015
  • Offers sent out – 13 February 2015
  • Scheme Closes – 16 March 2015 (last date for accepting the offer given)

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

You can request a collective switching paper registration form to be sent out by contacting North Lincolnshire Council on 01724 297000. Deadline for returning a paper form is Friday 30 January 2015 For further details, call Linda Palmer, Affordable Warmth Officer at North Lincolnshire Council on the number provided. 

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.”
