West Norfolk's Big Switch and Save

The Big Switch and Save is a collective switching scheme. 

The Big Switch and Save invites residents to sign up to take part in a ‘reverse auction’ where energy suppliers compete to offer tariffs to residents who are considering changing their energy supplier. Residents who are offered a better tariff than their current rate can then switch suppliers through the scheme and save money on their gas and electricity bills. By grouping households together it is possible to negotiate much lower energy tariffs than an individual switching supplier on their own.  

It is simple to take part, free of charge and no commitment is required; if the registrant is not happy with the new tariff, they simply continue with their current supplier. Personal details are not passed on to energy companies until the new tariff is accepted by the customer.
