The Big Community Switch

The Big Community Switch 'Winter Switch' will take place on Tuesday 3rd February 2015.

Gloucestershire County Council wants to support people in their quest to get a better deal for their energy.

The council is concerned about the impact that energy prices have on Gloucestershire residents, particularly older people and those living in fuel poverty.  That's why it is participating in the Big Community Switch to help people get cheaper gas and electricity by working together.

The Big Community Switch is bulk buying - if a large number of people want to change supplier together they are likely to get a better deal than just one person shopping around and switching on their own.

The more households that register their interest in switching, the more attractive it becomes for an energy supplier to offer a competitive price and the more likely consumers are to achieve significant savings.

Residents need to register their interest with the Big Community Switch by Monday 2nd February 2015 at the latest. 

You can  Register Online or by phoning the council on 01452 42 57 57 between 8.30am and 5pm Monday to Friday.  By doing this, you are under no obligation to switch supplier.
