Big London Energy Switch

The Big London Energy Switch is a collective switching campaign, established by London Councils, to help households change their energy supplier to one offering cheaper gas and electricity tariffs. Residents don't have to live in one of the partner boroughs to participate.

Anyone who pays an energy bill can register for the scheme. So, if you want to pay less for your energy and switch suppliers without having to organise it for yourself, you should register your interest

The aim is to get as many London residents as possible to register and when sufficient have signed-up an 'energy auction' will take place to secure the best deals on offer. The chosen suppliers will then offer a new contract those who have registered (you are under no obligation to accept their offer). For more information visit www.biglondonenergyswitch.org.uk.
