The Big Switch : Residents Join Together & Save £££s
The Big Switch is a collective energy switching scheme that uses people power to try to secure cheaper energy bills for residents.
Daventry District Council is working with switching partner iChoosr in to help people switch to a better deal.
How Much Can I Save?
Since its launch, the scheme has helped more than 1,000 homes across Daventry District save an average of £232 on their energy bills. Many people have saved far more!
How Does It Work?
Residents register on the scheme with the amount of energy they use. iChoosr holds an energy auction and gets energy companies to bid for the total amount of energy involved, so getting a cheaper price. Residents only have to switch, if they want to, once the price is confirmed.
What Do I Do Next?
iChoosr & Daventry Distirct Council hold 3 auctions a year, visit their website for the latest auction dates! Register for FREE… You will need your annual electricity and gas bills to register Visit www.daventrydc.gov.uk/bigswitchdaventry or call 01327 871100.
Step One: Register for free. Anyone who pays a household energy bill can register for FREE for the scheme. There are a number of ways you can register and it’s an easy process, but you will need a copy of a recent energy bill or annual statement to complete the process.
Step Two: Sit back, relax. Once registration has closed, DDC’s switching partner iChoosr will invite energy companies to offer their best tariff to everyone in the scheme in a reverse auction process.
Step Three: Consider the offer. You will then receive a personal offer tailored to your household on the new tariff secured by the scheme. This will use the information you gave when registering to tell you how much you could save by switching. We cannot guarantee that everyone will save money. It depends on your current tariff arrangements.
Step Four: Make a decision. You will have until the end of the current auction round to decide whether you want to switch or not. There is no obligation to accept the offer and no fees or charges.
