Collective Energy Switching Scheme – May 2020

West Berks Energy Switch poster

The ‘free to join’ Big Community Switch scheme negotiates competitive prices with energy companies on behalf of local residents. Those who register their interest will then be given a personalised offer showing how much could be saved by switching. If you decide to switch, the scheme takes care of the entire process for you. There is no obligation to switch.

Since 2016, switchers in West Berkshire saved more than £30,000.

How it Works

If you want to take part, register at www.westberks.gov.uk/communityswitch and sign up by 19 May. You will need to have your latest energy bill to hand as you’ll need the details during the registration process.

You will receive your personal offer email from 2 June.

If someone doesn’t have internet

The same email address can be used up to 5 times so you can sign up on behalf of friends or relatives without internet access. Or people without internet access can contact the Big Community Switch registration line on 0800 048 8439 Mon – Fri 8am – 5.30pm. Again, remember to have your energy bill or annual statement to hand when you call.up

Solar Panels

If you have solar panels you can still change your energy supply without needing to change your FiT (Feed in Tariff) supplier. However, the FiT amount is the same for all suppliers as it is set by the government so it wouldn’t matter if you did change your FiT supplier.

Businesses

Local businesses who want to lower their energy bills can register with Make It Cheaper by registering online here or calling 0800 188 4965
