Harness the power of collective bargaining for your gas and electricity bills

The Haringey Big Community Switch

Could you save money on your energy bills? Need a hand?

Let us do the hard work and see if you could save money by switching your energy provider as part of a group.

What is the Big Community Switch?

We are tapping into consumer power to help get you a better deal on your gas and electricity. The more people that register to switch, the better deal we will be able to negotiate. On 9 April a 'reverse auction' will take place where energy providers will offer lower and lower tariffs for people who have registered until the lowest bidder wins. Everyone who registers will be offered the opportunity to switch to a new deal, which you can choose to take, or not - there’s nothing to lose!

What do I need to do?

Visit our Big Community Switch website (external link) and follow the instructions.

The 4 key stages of the process are outlined below - once you've signed up and filled in your information we'll do all the hard work for you.

  1. Sign up free and with no obligation to tell us you are interested in switching suppliers to save money by 8 April 2013
  2. All you need to register is your name, postcode and a copy of your annual fuel bill
  3. You will receive an email from 17 April 2013 with an offer, based on your usage and the best deal from the auction
  4. You need to tell us whether you want to accept the offer and let us know before 6 May 2013

No access to the Internet or email?

You can register up to five households on the same email address. Why not help out a neighbour or friend who does not have access to the Internet or emails, but wants to participate? Alternatively see below to find out where you could register in person.
