The Big Community Switch
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 scheme is available to residents on dual and single tariffs and those with pre-payment meters.
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.
The Big Community Switch can also help households with pre-payment meters, making it easier to get a competitive price and save money on gas and electricity.
